Fly me to the Moon

This illustration is done in mixed media (acrylics, oil colors and prisma colors) on cold pressed illustration board.

Not to long ago my family and I went to the Kennedy Space Center. I was really impressed by the full sized rockets and knew right away I wanted them in a painting. It took me awhile to figure out what to add to the image to give it a little twist:  Someone who’s flying it to the moon!

Below are some photos of the painting in progress. The picture to the left shows some prisma color rendering with a layer of acrylic wash. The picture to the right shows the image after adding an oil color wash.
