Re: It's Fall in Argentina - A Wingshooting Trip

Oh... sure.

It's all unicorns pissing rainbows when you're catching awesome fish, in perfect weather, with an amazing woman at your side.

Carry on.

Re: It's Fall in Argentina - A Wingshooting Trip

Your Plein Aire "studies" are far more "incarnated" than your illustrations. The immediacy is evident and the translation of "nature" on the order of the architectonic. Just me, but the best I've seen thus far. Cheers B Thanks! I feel the same way... maybe in my retirement I'll be able to paint ple...

Re: It's Fall in Argentina - A Wingshooting Trip

After a short siesta, it's time to go out again. More ducks... or shall we follow a setter across the fields and walk up some perdiz? Perdiz it is. Meet Dario and his trainer Noel. Perdiz - Dario.jpg Perdiz Guide and Dog.jpg We find birds out feeding in last year's sunflower fields. Perdiz in Sunflo...

It's Fall in Argentina - A Wingshooting Trip

Re: flyfishing is such a white guys sport

Nothing racist about this... post it up... or fuck off.

All we care about is the character of a man's soul.

Try it again...
