Boy Scouts Across the Finish Line

Last night I found (I think) the Norman Rockwell image that I want to rework with Maxfield Parrish lighting. So today I am keen to get started. That means that I just did a quick one on the the second boy scout in this sketch.

I have to say that Rockwell meticulously planned out his paintings with charcoal studies and color studies - and it shows in the final product. Each value and shape is just so to express exactly the thing he wants it to say.

All the more reason to get on with my real project for this month. Off to make beef tamale pie!
