I finished this B&W interior illustration (for my upcoming book). This is an emotional scene. Littlejim has witnessed a horrible accident and has run away. He feel into the muddy creek and finally, his father came to see about him.
A few years ago, I did this pastel painting of this "watery trail:" the Intracoastal Waterway off the NC Coast. I love the IW, and those who are fortunate enough to have spent time boating on it know how it can draw you into its magic.
This is not exactly a skyline, but it is a view from far below the steeple of First Presbyterian Church of Charleston, SC . We had an exquisite trip there on a gorgeous April weekend -- lots of inspirational painting ideas. Sorry this is a late post this week!
