Below Shelburne Falls
I was surrounded by fly fisherman 🙂 steelhead is what they were going for. What a great location for painting and fishing!
One of the fishermen came over to have a look, when I was getting setup, I was feeling a bit self-conscious also not wanting to get a hook in my face while they were casting! Someone looking at the initial dibs and dabs and place-marks and underpainting can be forgiven for wondering if the painter knows what the hell they are about. I told him how my approach to these is to not think too much about the final result in advance, likening it to casting for the wily fish in different spots (tho what I know about fly fishing is only from that old movie )
