Coffee Break Study
Came across a pic of me painting afield, my thermos on the hood of the Jeep. Gave me an idea for a painting of a guy taking a coffee break on a rock. Thermos, shoulder bag, fly rod on rock next to him. (Click on image once to enlarge, then click on the enlargement and you'll see detail.)
This study was done entirely out of my head and it's the way I began every painting that has a concept. From here I'll look for a couple pictures to help me out. I can set my thermos and rod in the yard to look at.
