I didn't want it to be obvious I was photographing them because I wanted natural poses, so I held the camera on my lap and looked the other way as I shot pictures hoping some of them would turn out.
The background was cluttered with a tent and other unnecessary objects so I switched a hedge for the clutter keeping the background simple and not detracting from the main focus.
I enjoy doing these figurative works as challenging as they are. Some are successful and some aren't.
I'm almost finished with a painting of my wife Maria pruning the flowers in her planter. This painting of Maria just seemed to flow off the brush, I had three quarters of it done the first night, which is unusual for me.

Autumn Flyfishing 5x7 acrylic (SOLD)
This is from our recent flyfishing vacation in upstate Pa. I wanted to try out a small study first before doing a larger painting. I enjoy painting the late afternoon light when objects start taking on the orange glow.
We had a good trip even with the rain and both of us each caught nice trout.
