This is the ethnic series sketch of a real person [sort of] of the Egyptian Prime Minister Ibrahim Mahlab that I saw in the BBC news. He is a "public figure" and so is considered all right to paint him or sketch him. I generally do not make exact images of anybody, and most of the time, the sketches or oil paintings I designate as #ethnicseries [ethnic series] are not real people but people I created with pencils, pens, inks or paints. Probably of the approximate 1000 art "works" I have created [for my own purposes] only about 20 of them are of real people. I watch the news for ethnic groups clearly identified and close up enough to discern clearly their features so I can draw from it, then paint it with an authentic looking "costume" that a native to that country/ region would wear. I have created hundreds of ethnic series sketches and about forty oil paintings for it also. You can see many of those on my Picasa albums at https://picasaweb.google.com/gloriapoole and also https://picasaweb.google.com/gloria0817. This is a quick sketch only that I drew in ink while sitting at my computer studying it on screen, and then painted it just as quickly in watercolors. A sketch is merely intended to make a quick impression of a person, or idea, or thing so it can be repainted into oils or acrylics later. A sketch is to a finished painting as a rough draft is to a final manuscript. Sketch:painting::rough draft: final manuscript

This is one of my photos of my studio corner of my home office in Missouri. I have begun a new oil painting and I am letting the background dry in some before proceeding.
This is my photo of U S flag to remind all I am a US citizen by birth with all civil liberties including the first amendment.
