These are so fun to do. This is a combination of two drawings. The fins on this submarine are great! A plane shoots off the front. WOW! The 1970s were fantastic!

I am showing the process in completing this painting: Charleston Memories. This is an acrylic painting on canvas, 3 feet by 5 feet. Here is the under painting about half complete. I have not worked on the boat rigging at all.

I spent longer on this one than my normal sketches in this book. I like the jaw line and how that is a lost line. The collar bone came out well even though it is on the fold of the book.
I focused on the face.
Very cartoony...from a comic book.
The ars came out bizarre on this one. But ears are asymmetrical!

Here is a little more information about the process of completing the Thanksgiving Parade Illustration. Above is one layer of watercolor paint.
Here is a close up of one of the final illustrations with color pencil on top.

I started with this black and white collage of the various images. The Photos were taken by Jim McGuire for Center City Partners. They then asked me to create 5 illustrations for the parade sponsors. I then used a transfer technique using winter-green oil to create a mono-print. Over the mono-print, I painted many washes using watercolor paint. Then I put details in with color pencil.
