Sometimes it's fun to sketch in ink. This boat had some interesting shapes and values.

The Reverend Shuttlesworth was one of the pivotal leaders of the civil rights movement. My older daughter just completed a 10 day school trip following the footsteps of many of the great civil rights activists in the South. She sent me a postcard with a picture of Shuttlesworth so I felt compelled to sketch this picture.
I just finished a great 5 session course at the Bay Area Classical Artist Atelier with Mark Nardini. I had never attempted oil painting and so it was a lot of fun to try out a new medium to play with. I have been dabbling with watercolors for a few years and oil painting forces you to think and plan your composition quite differently. Here is a photo of the progress I made in my first attempt at oils.
