Down to the wire, but I got my one-a-week in. I don't like being rushed though. It did however lead me to experiment a bit. I wasn't happy with how the paint was laying on the paper, and didn't have time to start over, so I added in a layer of colored pencil.
I like my drawing more than I like the finished piece, so I might end up doing another version, maybe with oils. Then I can just think of this as a study, and that might make me like it better too.

work-in-progress post. Unfortunately, I forgot about documenting the process for a few stages. I will have to try to do better documentation on a future Commemorate the Date painting!
This is an 11" x 14" oil painting.

This painting relies heavily on my well established style of graphic, bold line work. I have used this style in the murals I have done, and would be happy to do so again. This kind of composition could be comfortable in a residential or commercial area... Maybe I need to search out another mural opportunity.
