mending the nets

5x7 watercolor and gouache done from a photo I took of an Italian fisherman. This is the 2nd time I painted from this photo. The light was very striking. I started out with an ink sketch on hot press paper then did an opera underpainting (Donna Zagotta's technique) and painted with watercolor and gouache highlights.
