    Here's a sketch of a young boy trying out his new pistol at a reenactment.

    I've been playing around with this cartoon idea that involves two ACW reenactors and how they balance their normal lives with their passion for living history. The working title is "Rob and Bob" and any feedback would be welcome.

    I've never eaten the stuff and I would never throw it in a crowded place.

    My goal is to gain sufficient proficiency and speed to lay down and paint quick sketches at reenactment events. Like the attached picture a few minutes are spent on the primary subject and the rest for background troops and terrain (five minutes or less) . This will be a challenge but I hope that practice will improve the quality.

    Here is an attempt at a mounted trooper - I now see why painting horses is an art form all its own.

    There are a host of period photo portraits out there to choose from. And most of the young men pose with their guns.

    I came upon my first ACW sketch (December 2010) - before I purchased my watercolor set.

    Weapons must be inspected regularly.
