    Gone Fishin' (Updated 7-20-10, Page 2)

    Hi everyone! It has been quite a while since I have posted (or painted) anything. Summer is in full throttle in my life and between my family and my work (and my computer still being down), I have had little free time to sit down and paint anything. What little time I have had has been spent heading out with my kids to our favorite fishin' hole in search of the one that always seems to elude us.

    Hopefully things will wind down soon and I will hit the paints again. I had some time today and painted this. I used a photo reference (I will post the photo I used on my blog)of my son on one of our fishing trips. Wanted to keep it loose and painterly with an interesting palette.

    Thanks for checking it out and I hope to be posting and commenting more soon.

    Take care,
    Eddie

    I'd say you should try this style more often. Mastered in one!

    Hi Eddie, I love fishing paintings simple because I love fishing but, hardly do it anymore, something I hope to change soon. I was once told by an old wise fisherman, " You forget about everything when you fish, it's a good cleansing for the mind and soul." Great that you took time to fish with your son, something he will definetly pass on to his children.
    Great palette and comp..................TJ

    In my opinion, this is a very good picture - a delicate and full of light. You have a "hand." My appreciation.

    This is very relaxing painting. You depicted the fisherman quite anxious to catch fish, look at the long steps he is taking, very nice indeed.!
