VSW: Cinderella’s Chariot

Magic!  Remember when you believed in magic!

I did, then I didn’t — there were explanations for everything and it was all very scientific.

Then, like the Buddhist saying, “Mountain, no mountain, mountain,”
I found magic again… but that is a longer story!

This image was based on a photo for use in the public domain.

I sketched an imaginative version using a watercolor pencil to think
then a Pilot Metropolitan with Super5 Frankfurt ink to line.

Watercolors over ink, and what is unusual is that I used metallic gold watercolor
(maybe a QoR sample?) and topped it with Robert Oster Heart of Gold ink…
I think I need to play with the metallics a bit more to get the hang of them!

A memory of being chosen to pilot the Mark Twain Riverboat.
I think the captain liked my pretty mom!
