Fishing Upriver

Fishing Upriver                       oil                   8" x 8"
Another fishing trip today and this was from a trip last fall. I worked on a more textured linen here and you will notice the thicker paint and texture of the surface generally. Today I thought I'd take a page from some other art blogs and post a detail view and a black and white for values. Hope you find them interesting comparisons.

Thank you for the comparison, Mary: very informative! I should do some value checks on paintings, too.

Your fishing images are so fun.

Wow! Before I saw the value study I was already thinking what depth this painting seemed to have and how it looked very masterfully painted. Then I saw your value study. It's so well done! You're a wonderful artist.

Love seeing the value study. Already knew it was good, but great to see just how spot on your values were.
Another lovely painting, Mary. Always a pleasure
