Day 21 : #30x30DirectWatercolor : Cormorant Fisherman

Day 21: Cormorant Fisherman

I was looking at all of my urban sketching reference material and thinking. Nope. Nothing here is not going to beat that rooftops painting. (Day 20).

Maybe I’m over-blowing it, but that’s how it goes :)

But also – this damned rooftop is my favorite thing lately – but it’s nothing like my stated goals. Which were to capture gritty, urban scenes. Potentially at night – but certainly with strong lighting.

Because – why?

I don’t now why.

I think I’m looking for something more dramatic. More cinematic anyway.

So I went back through the files with a new eye – and pulled out the best shots we have of people at work.

This is *also* nothing like my stated goals.

But let’s call it a warm-up.

    This is wonderful, I love the colours and the life you have caught in this scene. It brings back memories of seeing this in Guilin China, many years ago. I am also doing the 30 x 30 challenge, and my theme is whatever catches’ my eye in the garden here in North Wales. Thankyou for setting the challenge, I have found it challenging, the hardest part is the discipline to try and paint every day, but I am enjoying pushing myself more than usual. You continue to be an inspiration.

    I like it. My eye just keeps going back and forth. Each time finding new things that draw my attention.

    Hey, I love your urban scenes, but seeing the face of a fisherman and his crew of cormorants is a refreshing change for you. Although the painting may be from your archives, I hope you will play with this again.
