Henry J. King Steamboat

The drawing is layered on top of a map showing Mobile, Alabama. The map was prepped with a thin layer of white gesso to ensure the drawing will be visible on top of the original colors.

The image is an old steamboat loaded with cotton rolls. The text below is taken from an old newspaper article about the “Henry J. King” steamboat. Mr. King was my clients Great,Great Grandfather.

This is a drawing of Hannah and Tobias.

It is done in prismacolor on colored paper.Besides black and white, I added just a little bit of orange and red to warm it up.

I worked from a photo, in which the Dad was sitting behind them. Obviously ┬áhe wasn’t welcomed to be part of the final drawing (LOL) and therefore I had to ‘cut’ him out.
