Young Man Waiting for Fish, oil sketch

This is one of a number of quick sketches painted of a young man fishing. In this sketch, he had tied up his pole, and was just sitting, looking. He moved quite a bit, frequently getting up to check lines, walk, etc. The weather was exquisite. It ws great fun to paint a figure in sunlight, though the pose was very short lived.

Thank you! Quick sketches are great sometimes in that you don't get a chance to overwork them and lose the freshness. "Finish" is another story....
