'Asian Style Brush Painting

Sunday post for Sketchers and Photographers. The above photo is of an Asian style brush painting. It is done with a rather fluid stroke of the ink brush and touched up in the nearing final process on mixed media paper ~ 8x10.

Below is a photo of a schooner that provides harbor cruises on Cape Ann Harbor of all sorts ~ moonlight, music, celebrations. Every evening at dusk you can hear the canon shot signaling 'day is done'.
