Fishing in a Blue Boat

We went out plein air painting at Wilson lake. Although the trees lost there color early or did not have much this year I found this blue in blue fisherman. Painting as fast as I could I managed to get him done before he moved on. Then I worked on the landscape behind him with a tip from Jessica to paint the tree holes a darker shade of blue than the more open sky above. The sun was shining at me but that is what made the great light on the fisherman.

  1. Really like the rim lighting on the fisherman. The back-lighting comes across nicely.

    1. That part turned out like I planned. Landscape this time of year is a bit more challenging.

  2. I love how you kept all the background in soft edges and your focal point with sharper ones. Really nice work Carlene!
