The two "Baseball Greats" Design Sets were created over a span of years.  The changes in my methods and skills over time are apparent when viewing the complete sets.  The earlier cachets were made using different mediums and I learned much as time went by with improved results...

The earlier covers were some of the first that I ever made... I experimented with many different art medium over the years.  The earliest of them in the two "Greats" designs were done basically with water color and colored pencil... you may notice some differences in the look as you scroll down...

Eventually I discovered "Water-Based Oil" paints and to this day that is my preferred medium...

... but who knows, I may discover something new at any time!  On the Sets of "Greats" Be sure to scroll down to the cachets lower down... they are the latest and show the current skill level results!
