Will Catch No More! Chinese Poetry…and a Painting:)

The water colour  sketch inspired by a Yuan dynasty painting,is entitled Fisherman. Wu Zhu (1280-1354) painted the original sketch and wrote a poem too about it: Red leaves, west of the village reflect evening rays. Yellow reeds on a sandy bank cast early moon shadows Lightly stirring his oar, Thinking of returning home, He puts aside his fishing pole, and will catch no more.

One lazy evening and lots of colours… fisherman
