Fishermen - 6 of spades in 2011 ACEO Playing Card Deck

ACEO 2,5 x 3,5 - watercolor on Fabriano 300 gms paper.
Painted for the 3rd ACEO Playing Card Deck at Ebay Aceo Group. This year I have the 6 of Spades.

Tis is from a pic I took in Zanzibar a couple years ago. The color of the sky and the mix of bluish of the sea gives a great contrast to the white if the sails of this little boats.
The boats are carved in a single piece of wood and yhis wood looks so black.
Fishermen don't love that people takes pics of them or better they'd like to gain some money from this but my camera was powerfull enough to be able to get son excellent shoots that are perfect for some more paintings!

Thanks a lot Lee and Gabriela, I enjoed so much to be part of it in the past and now again. The point of making a card is that you try to out your art inside of it and you try to explain who you are.
