Black Angus!

Angus is a teddy bear with a very active imagination. Here he is performing a take-off on N. C. Wyeth's cover illustration for Treasure Island. I made this picture with ink and acrylic paint on plywood.

Wow, your Wyeth cloud is so good I thought this was a photoshop project at first.

Just good old-fashioned painting (mostly because I never learned how to use Photoshop). I only wish I could do what Wyeth did without having to resort to out-and-out copying. But it's a useful way to figure out how he captured that late afternoon glow.
