Connection! Fly Fishing & Catching - Big Horn river

Connection!                                oil                               8" x 8"
This year's trip to Montana had some excellent fishing and catching, and while the weather was hot, it's always a great place to be. I am going to experiment with acrylic next time I work plein aire and am looking forward to the challenge. My intent is to speed drying for transport and not pack any solvents on a longer trip. When I paint over about 30", I frequently use acrylic and enjoy the change. I use a Sta Wet palette and it works great to keep the paint workable, making it easy to store for several days.

  1. Bonjour ma chère Mary,

    J'aime le mouvement et la frénésie de la prise du poisson par ce pêcheur.
    Vous avez magnifiquement capturer cet instant d'excitation intense...
    Les couleurs et la lumière du soleil animent agréablement cette peinture.

    Je n'ai jamais vraiment travaillé l'acrylique. Je suis tellement lente pour peindre !...
    Cependant je suis certaine que pour vous ce serait plus pratique pour le transport...
    J'ai hâte que vous nous donnez vos impressions ensuite...

    Je vous fais de gros bisous.

  2. Beautifully painted, Mary!! Another winner!

  3. You are simply the BEST at painting water. This is a great example of it. Love all the colors reflecting in those ripples.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love hearing from you!
