"Fishing On The Yampa River"

"Fishing On The Yampa River"// Original Oil Painting on  Archival Canvas panel/ 8"X10

Colorado week: Steamboat, Colorado Landscape painting/ Original oil painting
      This original Plein Air* oil painting was painted on location in Steamboat, Colorado.
It features a fisherman enjoying a sunlight morning on the beautiful Yampa River.
I had the pleasure of taking my paints to Colorado to capture some of the scenery there. 
It's helpful to vary one's subject matter to improve at painting. 
As I've been painting a lot of reflections in still life paintings, I find this is great practice for painting bodies of water.
