I have been working on a book about our family Sweden Genealogy for....well....for forever!!!! My dad liked this painting of a clipper ship. The title of his book is Waves, Ports and Clipper ships. So I set out to do a simple rendition of the painting. I finished yesterday. I have not done anything like this in a very long time. I traced the ship and then colored over the tracing and added black ink for detail. Kind of highschoolish, but I was pleased with the outcome. It could be, that I am just pleased that it is done!
