Day 438 – Fishing time 

  
This was sketched on the docks of Laretto Creek across from Fort Palaski on Tybee Island. 
One of my favorites painted recently because of all the whites I think. 

  

He had noticed me sketching and asked if he could see them. I had been wanting to draw the fisherman but resisted because I might get caught undercover Sketching. As soon as he started fishing again I whipped this sketch off and quickly turned the page. I knew he would not mind. 

It was painted with my Isabey squirrel mop #2 in a strathmore mixed media journal and drawn with my noodler cheaper ahab with platinum carbon black ink. 

The bright fall sky was painted with cobalt and a bit of cerulean. Trees were painted with Quin gold and hematite with dabs of hookers green. So was the marsh grass.  The water is Andrews turquoise with dabs of cerulean. Skin is Quin red and yellow ochre. Shirt hookers green and inathradone.  Pants no idea. Yellow ochre and burnt umber w inathradone?! 

Thanks for reading.
