Fall Fishing by Early Light

Title: Fall Fishing by Early Light
Size: 24 x 30
Medium: oil on stretched canvas
Going on eBay auction tonight at an incredibly low price!
Many layers of Winsor Newton Artist oils with both brush and knife in this gallery quality painting. I finished it over time and it has many layers of glazed color and is rich and deep with contrasting cool blues and warm reds, which I love. This painting was inspired in part by my uncle, who used to take me fishing when I was a child, and in part by my stay in Montgomery Alabama, where I painted the Alabama river quite often and frequently saw fisherman and photographed them.
I am a big believer in color makes the painting. Vivid reds, oranges, yellows and deep greens automatically add warmth to any room and even just a splash of color here and there in a painting can dramatically add impact to an otherwise blah painting. Hope you enjoy!
