Mudanya is a seaside town near Bursa, 30 kilometers away. I saw that fisherman at there, whom was trying to mend his fishing boat, a woolen cap on his head, worn an olive coloured and sun-faded heavy leather jacket, well portrait I thought. I always like to sketch instead of taking photos, so with my old sketchbook and a 4B pencil in my hand, I said,
-I want to draw a sketch for a painting, can you look at me?
-I want to make a drawing of you, do you look at me?
He looked at me like saying 'I try to earn money and that useless young man try to draw!', then he said,
-Right, but be quick !
I started to sketching, after seconds he looked around, I feel that he got bored and I quickly finished the sketch. Then, I said " Thanks, good fishing to you.", he said nothing and return to mending. While I was leaving shore, I thought about him "Poorman, how could he earn money with that little fishing boat?", I am sure that fisherman also thought about me, "Poorman, how could he earn money with that drawing book?". Both of us are right.
