I did the preliminary sketch on the beach in Hurghada, Egypt while my ship was tied up to the dock waiting for orders, and finished it later in my cabin.  Artists are not a common sight there, and I attracted quite a crowd.

About Jon Lucas

I'm a retired Master Mariner, living in Bothell, Washington.  My job took me all over the world and we lived in many places outside the US.  Many of my paintings reflect those places. I have no formal art training... just took it up as a hobby that I could pursue on long voyages.  When we lived in Singapore I got especially interested in Chinese watercolor technique, later tried pastels, but now work mostly in oil, sometimes underpainted with acrylic.  Lately I have tried a few pure acrylics.  Still can't decide if I like it or not.
