untitled- Fly Fisherman

Untitled-Fly Fisherman  9"x12" oil  
Once again, I enjoyed painting John,  in this more pensive pose, while he ties on a fly. I used a different warm tone under all the cool umbers and blues this time. I first washed on a sienna mixed with just a touch of yellow. He's really an angular figure, and the lights and dark planes were fun to slash in.

Un moment de répit pour le pêcheur... Pas pour vous ma chère... Vous oeuvrez magnifiquement bien!
Un beau sens de l'observation qui surgit dans chacune de vos peintures.
gros bisous
