Sketching In The Galleries: An American Portrait, John Wesley Jarvis

Our Instructor, Linda Ridgeway, brought us to the American 19th Century Gallery in Celebration of the Birthday of Abraham Lincoln. Our assignment was reverse drawing where we use a white pencil on black paper. This is one of my favorite ways to draw. I chose this 1815-20 painting by John Wesley Jarvis entitled Portrait of a Man.
