Slide 010 - Amistad Slave Ship & Lighthouse
This drawing was commissioned by a gentleman as a Christmas gift for a friend. It is of the famous slave ship the Amistad with the light house in the background. I had never done a ship, a lighthouse or a landscape so it was a new challenge and I thank him for the opportunity and his confidence. Drawing the sky, sea and detailed rigging was very different than anything I had drawn so far. Happily I was able to complete the drawing in time for the holidays. (Thank you to Walter, Will and Ben for keeping Hope (18 months) entertained!) It is a beautiful ship and I even learned a bit of history in the process.
