sketchbook: the Edmund Fitzgerald

Attempting to draw more different things. Here is the mighty Edmund Fitzgerald. A lake freighter which sank in Lake Superior in 1975. The song, "The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot haunted me as a kid when we'd go fishing in a little row boat in Lake Michigan with my Dad.

sketchbook: bought me a brush

Bought a brush and started going to town with inks. Also experimented with using lighter washes to get more tone.
