In the Sling-8x10

the figure drawing sessions are making my drawings way more accurate and quicker too.

The Dawn is Breaking- 12x16
Two, hot off the plein air easel. Found a new favorite boatyard with a very friendly owner who loves us paint bums and gave me unlimited access. thanks rick!
the sunrise scene was done from a field study. whenever youre feeling cold or stressed and just want to get away from it all, this one will take you where you wanna go. to margaritaville!

Love that dawn/sunrise, Mike! And your drawing keeps getting better - love to follow in your footsteps...(wishful thinking, but I'll be working at it)
