Thanksgiving Illustration

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.
