Resting Time

Another half sheet sized (56x38 cm Fabriano Artistico rough 300gm)painting.
I added the background of boats later as it received some comments that he needed something to show what he was doing as the nets he was mending had not been read well (I hate making complicated sentences like this with different tenses as I'm probably doing them incorrect!). The original is here.
Some objected the tittle too.Does a fisherman mend his net in his resting time?I believe he does if he is self employed so its still "Resting Time".

Nusret, this has always been one of my very favorites. I haven't seen it since you added the boats. Looks so good. Hope you sell them all!
