The “A Chicago Halloween - Wrigleyville” ghosts. Technically the ghosts were never layered in until the watercolor phase, but I thought folks might like to see the original outlines too. I’ll show their watercolors before I show the final watercolor step.
For those of you who don’t know, or didn’t already guess, the ghosts are (from left to right): Ron Santo, Roger Hornsby, Lefty*, Gabby Hartnett and Kiki Cuyler.
*Originally I wanted to use Hack Wilson, but his short beefy frame looked like crap. And, with the auction deadline only a couple days away I had to make a substitution. So Lefty is a mystery player. An unknown great perhaps, or maybe just one of the many unsung heros to play the game. Yeah, that sounds about right.
