Today's creation is not a wild step away from what I have already been painting but, because it was for my Dad, I considered adding some details that I would not have thought to normally.

My Father loves nothing more than being alone (Well, with the exception of the mandatory pooch) in nature fishing...for hours. I'm pretty sure he would be quite happy in this scene!
Painting silhouettes is both simple yet, challenging, It's a great way to study the shape of an object. Trees are always very forgiving as they naturally come in so many odd and interesting shapes but, when you start adding people, animals or common structures, you have to pay a lot of attention to detail. A little bump or line in the wrong place and suddenly the object is not as easily identifiable.
I hope you enjoyed today's creation. Tomorrow's is much quirkier and outside of my comfort zone- see you then!
