First, anything look different around here? Yes, I changed things around a bit. Hope you like it. Moving on...
I didn't have much time to work on The Thomas Project today as I had to watch Anthony while Ann was at work. But he did watch me for a bit while I filled in the cloud with white paint over the Gesso.
As you can barely see, I only filled in the spaces between the top line of text. The bottom will be next. Once the top portion was done, I began to fill in the text with red paint. It looks sloppy now, but I will fill in the serifs and finer details later.
And for you detail nuts, here's some close-ups of the pencil sketches.
In case some of you are wondering, yes, I am getting a bit tired of looking at ol' Thomas. But Anthony's reaction to just the preliminary pencil sketch and small painted area was well worth the effort: "WOW! CHOO-CHEE!" (his word for Thomas and trains in general).
Speaking of trains, we're taking him to Travel Town in Griffith Park today. I have a feeling he'll enjoy it!
