Fish Wake Early
This is an impressionist rendering of a young man starting at dawn to fish at beautiful Bald Head Island. The painting is acrylic on museum wrapped linen canvas. The painting is painted on sides as well so that framing isn't necessary. It is a 12 x 12 inch work that will go on sale at my Etsy sight.
I mentioned earlier that linen and acrylic seemed to be harder to work on than my usual masonite. Found that three coats of clear acrylic gesso takes care of the problem. Thanks to those on Wet Canvas for the idea!
