Voyage/departure

This one definitely went thru some changes to make it to the finish line! I printed it twice, the first time the sky was less than inspiring, there was no figure in the distance.

Second time round, i fixed that.

In doing a quick small print w/ some digital color, and a bit of colored pencil, the end game appeared, at least in my head, if not in the sketch. Just coloring the long vertical ‘flag’ opened the door.

So i knocked it out, adding some searing color to the hole in the clouds hi-lites.

Never been happy with how the blue/ultramarine oil color i have goes down, so after i scanned it, i added some final retouching, boosted the blue in the center, & crossed the finish line, so to speak.

Now it sings, zings, rocks out!
