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.
