The Problem with the boat...

This was the problem with trying to be an artist on a small boat. Anything over 30" X 24" had to be taken outside. This was a little project I abandoned, trying to make the best of an incomplete Beyonce photo, and intending an acrylic life-size painting. But it was good practice. I completely freehanded the whole thing in graphite, using only my eye. Beyonce is rather short-legged and stocky (for such a beautiful girl) and I tried to be as realistic as possible. I think this was the day I screamed, "Give me a studio again!!"
