A Spot Of Red

A Spot Of Red       8" x 10"          oil
It's amazing how little red is needed to command attention, especially when surrounded by cool blues and greens. And, that is exactly what caught my eye when I saw this guy in his red vest, fishing on the Big Horn river in Montana. He had company and I suggested the figure in the background, but left the main figure to be the focus.

Awesome! I really like the how sharp the focal angler looks. Home Run on this one.

I like the anglers connection to the drift boat thru the subdued red also.
