Continued Work on a Still Life of Fishing Equipment

Friday Afternoon Segment of the Fishing Still Life

Friday Afternoon Segment of the Fishing Still Life

While listening to a Robert Motherwell DVD documentary, I spent Friday afternoon in the Cave tinkering with this fishing-equipment still life I began last night.  I spent most of the time trying to establish the dark shadow areas, and laying in the bright red accents on some of the detailed objects (and there are many–fishing lures, coffee can. Lucky Strike cigarette package, lettering on the feed company sign).  I am now up-to-my-elbows with it, and starting to feel the fatigue of too-little sleep from last night and a heavy teaching load today.  So I think I will lay it aside before I start making lazy short-cuts (which I do when I’m tired).  I will either return to it tonight or tomorrow, but I shall return.  I’m getting attached to this one early.

Thanks for reading.
