Gone Fishing

I'm really getting into the loose style with the acrylic paints. The 3rd week of the workshop was to show reflections in water. I used a photo that I took a while ago at Dixon Lake of a fisherman out in one of the rented boats. Robert Joyner, the artist who is teaching this workshop, shows us to have a fairly even balance between abstract and actual to keep the painting interesting. I can't compare my results against his paintings but if I continue to practice at some point mine will get better. Until then, I'm having fun learning something new.
