Perfect Fishing Day

Is there any more southern tradition on a hot summer day than to go fishing on the bank of lake?

I did a lot of composing in this scene: the bridge was actually much further to the left about a half a mile. The bridge that was here was a common overpass, nothing interesting.  I loved the metalwork of this bridge and wanted to include it.

I also made sure to create depth using aerial perspective: the trees in the back are much lighter and bluer than those in the middle and front.

This family was enjoying their afternoon: father, mother and son, fishing together.

Beautiful day in Dahlonega at Lake Zwerner. #watercolorpainting #landscape #mariapeagler
