5x7 inches, acrylic on paper, in a sketchbook
On Sunday I went on a photo safari, and bagged a photo of a man fishing below the Monterey Dam here in town. I did a couple little watercolors of similar scenes, and then this brilliantly colored one, then asked my husband which he preferred, and he liked this one best. In reality the rocks are pale limestone, the water mostly a muddy green, but I wanted to make the picture more lively, more cheerful, more fun so I ditched reality.
Sometimes ditching reality is fine.
