Pen and ink drawing with an added wash of Stout. Crescent hot press watercolor board, 100% rag, acid-free, 140 lb watercolor sheet mounted to triple-thick board. It eliminates the need for restretching, used to support the wet media. This drawing was a commission for the Boston pub band “The Gobshites”. They will use the drawing as cover art for their new cd “Songs Me Da Got Pissed To”. The portraits onn the wall are JFK and the band leader’s “Da”.
I developed the technique for painting with stout after I spilled a drop of the black stuff on my sketchbook while sketching session musicians at a local Irish pub.
