Fishing In Shadows

Fishing In Shadows                      oil                     9 x 9"

In these busy past few weeks, I've had a bit of time to paint, but posting has gotten the short end of the stick. So, this is a catch- up post for a painting I put together last week. I was trying for interesting darks, trying not to rely too heavily on flat passages. This was from two photos of the Owyhee River in the fall, with the rust colored foliage providing contrast. 
I hope your Christmas was wonderful and that you find time for relaxing as the year winds down.

Pin It

Made my day! - colors are so uplifting! I love your style!

A wonderful combination of gorgeous, intermingled color. You certainly depicted the scale of the scene well. The man looks small in that mighty river with the large brush and trees behind him.

I hope you have a wonderful New Year full of great painting opportunities!

I can’t imagine focusing long enough to research; much less write this kind of article. You’ve outdone yourself with this material. This is great content.
