LOOKING AHEAD TO HALLOWEEN
Norman Rockwell study
I have been practicing obbozzo (see my Artipedia section to the right), doing some sketching from some of Norman Rockwell's seasonal paintings. I loved the view of these children as the innocently go off to Trick or Treat, wishing their hardest for lots of candy. I find sketching from some of the master artists a good education for learning composition skills and technical knowledge.
This is my own cartoon of the look of fright reading ghost stories. I am horrendously bad at cartooning, but it isn't going to stop me from having some fun with it!
