I've always done a lot of watercolor paintings. I started in high school, my art teacher, Margaret Stein, literally sat me down in front of the room window with paper, paint and brushes and said "Paint !". That got me started and Herb Schiebold, my good friend, and I would often go out and do watercolors on the spot.
Ravens was painted in the mid 1960's and it won first prize in the Michigan Watercolor Society Show.
In 1971 my wife and I took a trip to Africa, we visited Ghana, Kenya, Ethiopia and the Sudan. The above painting was done in Khartoum. When sketching outdoors I usually first do a drawing with a technical pen, then paint over it with watercolors.
