Fishing_Colorado, fishing, sketch

Fishing___Sketch #23 from my Colorado of the whole sketchbook soon!-

This man was fishing in front of our place last month and stood here for a while, so I think he was untangling his line...kind of how I fish...

It is a fairly "quickie" sketch and I made sure to do HIM first, since I thought he would move turned out that he stayed a while and I had more time on his part of the sketch than I bargained for...but the LESSON here is to START a sketch or plein air paintig with the thing MOST LIKELY to the background for last since it will stay put....usually :)
