Croatian Fisherman
We are in Croatia, where I am leading a plein air painting experience with 10 students on the island of Korcula, near Dubrovnik. The light around the Adriatic Sea this time of year, gives everything a warm glow and seems to intensify the turquoise waters.

A fisherman tending his boat and nets at Lumbarda (the village where we are all staying) provided an ideal “live” model as I had chosen his boat to demonstrate water reflections for the group, just before he hopped aboard. The russet colored fishing net and small white floats, all carefully wrapped for his next trip out on the water begged my attention as a painter.

He stayed aboard just long enough to strike an interesting pose and gave me a wonderful opportunity to capture a fleeting moment in time.
