  • "The Americana"

         Always on the lookout for good art models to teach in my Fundamentals of Art classes, I let my own desire and interest inspire me.  In giving a lesson on drawing machines, namely a boat, I needed a real object.  I recall when I was a child, drawing a row boat following along steps in a book.  Didn’t think much of my accomplishment.  So as a teacher, and an artist, I try to draw from life.  Not living next to the ocean or harbor or where boats are, the next best thing would be to get a model.

         Found this beautiful handcrafted, floatable sailboat online. Starting out showing how to use basic shapes, drew "The Americana" first in charcoal.  When the image looked proportionally correct, I traced the outline onto 18” x 12” 140# watercolor paper.  Stuck to red, white and blue color scheme, with a little earth tone.

         This watercolor was entered in Hemet Valley Art Association Special themed category.  No awards were won.
