September 21, 2006
Working hard but not sure I’m working smart. I need to finish up opening sequence of The Top Secret Project and I’m not even half done. I also have two illustrations for the next issue’s Classic Gunfights, which will be the Billy Thompson-Chauncey Whitney shooting in Ellsworth, Kansas. Gus Walker did a great map and I worked quite a bit yesterday trying to make the copy fit I had great research, local info and sidebars from Tom Bicknell and Jim Grey. Thanks guys.

I also need to find art for our train issue postcard and am contemplating an illustration, but that’s another can of worms.

Here's a couple of the cloud studies:

Plus, Mary wanted to buy my big thunderhead cloud study last week, but it was in my sketchbook, so I promised her a better version that she could frame. Here it is:

As you can see, my wash studies are loose and fun, but I still have problems when I switch to the final. Gee, I wonder if Jack Dixon has anything to say about this?
