Man fishing in North Carolina, Instructions and Supply.

Man fishing in North CarolinaThis is a small painting designed for the painting classes, inspired by the old south. I imagined this man fishing in the shallow waters of a river in this beautiful land.

Note: The studio is coming along fine. Lots of work! We will be ready to start our classes on February 2016.


  1. Start by drawing the man and the background.
  2. In this painting I did the under-paint with acrylics because they dry faster. When under-painting I am also finishing the drawing defining the light and the shade. The light with white and the shade with a mixture of gold and black.
  3. Enjoy doing your final painting. In this case I use oils because I love their bright colors and blending.


This painting can be done in 2 medias, Oil Paintings or Acrylics.
