Here are some illustrations that I did when I was 14 in 1942. These were probably my first attempt at painting with watercolors. I must have been reading a lot about historic naval battles. You may wonder where I found all this old art, my mother saved a lot of the things that I drew and painted when I was a kid.
THE BATTLE OF LAKE ERIE
BATTLE AT FAYAL, THE AZORES
BATTLE OF MOBILE BAY
This illustration looks a if I were influenced by Fred Harmon, the artist who drew the Red Ryder comic strip. This was done using gouache, not watercolors.
