This blog is really a journal of my journey into the world of art.
I have no formal art training and have not done much more than doodle since I was a kid. But I am learning that art is an important aspect that has been missing from my life.
Thanks to some wonderful extremely artistic friends in the fountain pen world and on Twitter I have begun this journey - thanks, Mia, for insisting..
So, I am attending a State and Local Taxation Conference in Washington DC at Georgetown Law. This conference coincides with the DC Supershow which I will be attending on Saturday. Sunday is reserved for sightseeing, at the least I want to get to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, to honor my Dad who was killed there 47 years ago. It has been almost 20 years since my last visit to The Wall.
Anyway, today's conference speakers provided a lot of models for sketching.
This weeks instructor is Prashant Miranda and our first homework assignment was to go outside and do a watercolor of the sky. The skies here have been a little boring lately, typical midsummer washed out blue, so I chose a photo that I took of a spectacular sunset that I took in the fall of 2006.
