Annapolis Bar Fight



This is an illustration I submitted to "What's Up? Annapolis," a Maryland magazine. The subject was a bar fight in Annapolis in the 1860s between one Russian sailor and a bunch of American sailors. (Getting reference for this was extremely difficult; this was a transitional period when the Navy had just begun to issue uniforms for enlisted men.)

Probably the most involved painting I've done yet, as far as figures go. Nine people! And I really like the style of this, too. It's kind of a hybrid of colorized photos and oil painting. I think I'll try to continue in this flavor for a while.

Hi this is such a good pic of a sailors brawl, would it be possible to use in a doco on David Livinstone?
