This is a painting I finished recently. I had a reference photo that I shot at the Sebastian Inlet here in Florida. I love that place! There are always interesting characters fishing at the end of the pier.
I changed a lot with this guy, except for the pensive look on his face. His clothing and cap are different from the photo and I made the decision to eliminate all of the extra noise in the background to highlight the warm tones and wrinkles in his face.
I call this one “Old Fisherman”, and it measures approximately 14 by 20 inches.
This was an incredibly fun piece!
