First Day Out

First Day Out          oil       9" x 12"
This is one from the Big Horn river once again. I have several pics taken while in a boat watching others fish. I try to get some actions in the shots and then of course I look for the light. This was taken mid-day, so I had to increase the contrasts for more interest, but liked the warmth. I also used another in this  series of photos in a vertical composition for my painting "Tight Line

Pin It


  1. For me - it is the feeling of choppy water that holds my interest. That boat appears to be moving.
    You continue to amaze!

  2. I came so close to naming this "Choppy Waters" and it makes me laugh that you saw that! Thanks Julie for your always uplifting and accurate observations :)

  3. Wow, this looks great, Mary. Good composition and feel of action!


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