Fly fishing art,

I haven't posted anything in a while, I have been painting…. just not posting anything.
I find myself looking at finished paintings (or what I thought was finished) and seeing things that could be improved.
The painting below went through three different changes, I think this is the final version. This is one of the streams we fish in upsate Pa.

Young Womans Creek 11x14 oil

Superb, evocative painting Pat. Figures really do add interest to a landscape, especially when they are actually doing something, as here. You've done a great job with this.... makes me want to get the rods out!!!

Thanks Kev, I appreciate that.

I really love the way you have captured the light in this one. Was that an area you worked on? I find digging out older paintings to rework the way to really see my personal growth.

Hi Julie, yes that was the area that I worked on, it just needed a shaft of sunlight for contrast.
