Down East Trapper (27x50")

"Down Est Trapper" (27x50") oil on canvas
Finished and framed this good sized oil of a lobsterman and sent it off to the Camden Falls Gallery in Camden, Maine.  The model is my good friend Johnny Hames again.  To his credit, there is no better role player than him, he gets it.  Fun to work with a good friend too.  I had planned on adding color to this but was pleased at the underpainting or grissailes state.  Essentially, it's a monochromatic painting...I used Raw Umber, a little Ultramarine blue for the darks and white.
