Love those blues... really sets the mood for this beautiful painting.

Todd Bonita said...

Thanks for noticing Diana, in person, the blue is very's Cerulean almost from the tube..mixed just a bit. I almost called this "Blue Bay trapper"..there is a back story that goes with this and explains why this fisherman is "blue" the show where this was hanging, a bottle of "Johnnie Walker Blue" and the story comes with it's purchase.

A wonderful painting Todd, especially love the softness in the water, and the trapper's face turned away gives it a special balance.
