Bait Casting and Figures on Friday #4

 Bait Casting, 7 x 5, oil on panel, L. Daniel © 2021

I love watching fishermen cast for bait with their nets in the shallows. Throwing out, and pulling back in, throwing out, pulling back in. There is a real rhythm to it. They are serene and very focused... and understandably so. They are preparing for a day of fishing, their beloved sport. There was a rhythm to painting this scene as well. Shadows and light, shadows and light, big shapes, simple gesture, shadows and light.

I love it when a painting tells a story and this one does it beautifully!
