In the early part of the last century small one-room schools were a common part of the landscape in the midwest. The Cynthianne School is a good example. Here we see the school with some students hurrying to get to class on time. This building is still standing and is currently serving as a rustic coffee shop.
My process includes creating an acrylic wash to inspire the background, followed by a digital painting done using many transparent layers. I adjust the order and transparency of the layers until I get just the effect that I want and freeze it into a file for printing.
Each print is made after you place your order, using archival inks on archival water color paper with a white border displaying the quality paper.
