So I meant to have this one done last week but I wasn't happy with my first attempt and just decided to redo it. Looking at my second attempt I may have went too dark with some of my values. My favorite thing about this painting is how much the characters look like pixar characters or I guess I should say how much pixar characters look reminiscent of Wyeth's characters since he came first. I think the composition is interesting, your eye just kind of bounces around from face to face and each character seems so interesting and demands so much attention that it almost makes the painting seem too busy and yet it still works. I always end up focusing on the captain's face because he looks like the most interesting man in the world dressed as a sea captain. The Delaware Art Museum has a wonderful collection of golden age illustration art but this is my favorite painting there.
