South Fork Fall

South Fork Fall             8"x 10"              oil           
This fisherman is kind of blending into the darks of the bank, but it might help to catch more fish! I wanted the cold water feel, but with some warmth in the dry grass and leafless branches on the bank  as contrast. I wouldn't be in that river myself, but the fly fishers I know are every bit as single minded and dedicated as the artists of my acquaintance.......ha!     

Just a note on Monday's post...
"Swept Away" is now off 'hold' and officially for 'sale' and I thank those who inquired and left such nice comments about it. I made color notes and will be painting from my digital image of it for the enlargement if it sells.
Pin It

I like how he blends in with the surroundings. It helps make the story of this piece! It's a wonderful piece with rich tones and interesting rhythm to lead my eye around. Nice job!
