This week’s line drawing that I will paint with a dominant color and color scheme chosen by one of you is …
Family Treasures No. 72
Army Air Forces and Army Air Corps Hats belonging to my father (WW II) and my grandfather (WW I)
Simply choose one from Card A and one from Card B, click on the link below and let me know what your choices are. I will use the choices of the first person who contacts me and post the finished sketch tomorrow. Thanks for playing!
Everyone who sends me choices will receive, by email, a pdf file of the above drawing that may be printed out on 140 lb watercolor paper and painted with a choice of color scheme and hue so that participants may play the game with the same drawing. If you choose to paint your own version, please send me a photo or scan of your painting and I will add it to this post so that everyone may see the infinite varieties of color applications to the same drawing. No rush, I’ll continue to add to this post whenever I receive a file.
Scan to the end of this post to see the completed sketch using Betsey Foster’s choices. To read more about how the choices for color were made, click here.
