Week 2, Day 4


Cleaning up with a bit of white.


A quick color comp just for fun really but also to see what I'm thinking might look like in the finished piece. I'm one of those people who really likes the behind the scenes stuff. I've always more interested in how something is made than the finished product. I remember looking at Norman Rockwell's color studies and liking them more that his finished work and his finished work is stunning in person. I had the opportunity to see his exhibition at the Chicago Historical Society and I can't remember being more impressed with his skill as a painter.


This is the process from the first draft to the third. I'm working on one more before I move up to the final size. There are a few things I want to tighten up and I'm considering adding some other elements.
