COMPLETED! The final traditional watercolor has been completed for N2 publication's commission and the Long Grove Historical Societies' "Save the bridge" campaign.
A year in the making, this 16" x 20" painting was developed in stages for not only my purposes (i.e.; rough sketches,tonal studies,etc.), but to share with the publisher of Long Grove Living Magazine/N2 publications as to the paintings progression. The 11" x 14" tonal study was created on colored paper and rendered in markers, ink and Prismacolor pencils. This image was given to one of the main supporters of the "Save the historic bridge" campaign.
"Hopefully" I will be posting a complete tutorial on the making of this painting soon.
