Okay, I'll first post the finished pieces and then follow with the beginnings of new ones.
This is now what I call my "Santa Fe" page. I hope this will encourage you all to watch the musical, because it is truly something marvelous
You'll understand more if you watch the entire movie (they filmed a live performance) but essentially there's the "Santa Fe Prologue" and then the climax at the end of Act 1 with Jack's "Santa Fe" (right sketch). This is my favorite song of the musical, it's simply too good for words. Anyway
the sketch on the left is from the prologue. I call it "Ridin' In Style" taken directly from the lyrics. The context is Crutchy is fantasizing of a future in which he can move independently of his crutch through riding a palomino (yes, specifically a palomino). I went for a rough, minimalistic look for this sketch and purposefully included a left-behind crutch. You may have learned more about Newsies
than you wished, but I take my duty to educate very seriously
Next, I'll take on another realism project with a face.
This is the start of some watercolor portrait work. It'll be a little girl with a budgie, portrayed by Echo.
And the final two pieces for the wedding are all sketched out. I've made some changes that will be reflected in the painting, but for now, I'm just going to post the rough draft sketches.
