These three watercolors are going into a show in May, running through the end of May. I used black and white references for all three of these paintings. The John Sloan portrait comes from a photo in his book "Gist Of Art" -- a very worthwhile read. The other two come from photos of railroad workers and scenes from the 1940s. I am working in watercolor in my evening class trying to loosen up a little. The show is in Chicago in a gallery in Roscoe Village.
