Two Fishermen

Sketch by Sarah Sullivan of Two Fishermen

Two Fishermen

I went down to Elk Pond today to practice painting reflections. It was a beautiful morning and the colors of the trees, sky, and mountains were sharp and clear. However, I soon found that painting water reflections is similar to painting shadows. The shifting light and wind cause everything to move about and change. A pair of fishermen, possibly a father and son, were across the water and they kept moving around too.

This is a gouache and watercolor pencil sketch on a 12 X 12-inch sheet of black paper.
