This original in watercolour is a study of the Common Roach fish. Painted in a scientific illustration style, it shows in high detail the fishes’ scales and fins. The roach (rutilus rutilus) is a freshwater fish of the Carp family, and is native to most of Europe and western Asia. It is small to medium-sized fish, and one of the most common fish found in lakes and slow-flowing rivers, gathering in large shoals. They are omnivorous, feeding on invertebrates, plants and seeds. This original roach painting would be a popular choice for any serious angler!
