After yesterday’s painting of a retro pinup girl watercolor painting, I thought I would do another one with that same vibe. The photo reference I used for this painting caught my eye because it included one of my favorite cartoon characters, Cecil. He is one of the stars of The Beany & Cecil show. This cartoon originally ran from 1959-1962 and then made a brief return in the late 80’s by the creator of Ren & Stimpy. Needless to say, when I saw this photo I had a bit of a mind blown moment and quickly saved it and filed it away for possible use in the future.
