Southeast Whitesburg Mural--18 and now for something completely different

Okay, if you are a Monty Python fan you know that what usually follows that statement is more of the same, but in this case, we do have something new and different -- we have people.

The first images on the far right of the painting are of students graduating with a few faculty congratulating them. Above you can see the first thing I did today: the faces of my (generic) faculty. I used an actual photograph of this past May's graduation, but did not attempt to make the faculty recognizable.

One of my friends, Richard Elliot, said last week that he hoped my people would "look like people" and not cartoons. I think I might have accomplished that.

Here's what the section looked like at the end of the day. Still some detail work to be done on the graduates, their hair, gowns, etc.
