A Tribute to The Mongoo$e.....WIP

Created this for the 12th Annual Don Schumacher Racing's Open House to benefit Riley's Children's Foundation. I will be working on this during the event ( Aug. 31, 2018 ) and the painting will be an auction item.

It's 16" X 20" and done on Crescent board, I used some Pitt ink pen in places, the background is entirely done in Indian ink.



Line art for layout



Laid out with background done




First image nearly completed

Thanks Kaylen!....but I've actually done a piece for the open house for all 12 years now and have done more than 16 paintings for DSR with most of them hanging in their lobby.

....more done, including the start on the main portrait. The original reference picture was in black & white, used several different color shots of Tom to help render it in color.

Looking good! Brings back memories of watching the likes of the "Snake", "Mongoose", "Big Daddy", "TV" Tommy going against each other. Back then, you could stand behind the starting line and get the full effects of nitro fumes and burning rubber in your face!

Portrait is done, I may ( or may not ) get started on the next image, but either way I'll be ready for the event. I had to change the color of the stripe on the uniform in the portrait, using the b&w photo I assumed it was red, only to see a color photo of the uniform later and discover it was blue......had to do a little scrubbing!!

Made a little more progress before and while at the open house. Don Schumacher stopped by to check it out!!

Painting raised $420 for Riley's Children's Hospital, I'll post a shot once I complete the painting.
