Continental is a 13" by 24" prismacolor pencil drawing.
Bob with Carolyn on his shoulders were convenient models. I liked how Carolyn was so interested in the girl in the foreground fixing her braid; she, in turn, was gazing back into the scene of the show. This zig-zag of visual direction was interesting to me; it sort of created diagonals in the composition which was intersected by the tasseled "Keep Back" rope around the cars.
My, that little redheaded child is adorable and scene-stealing. Yes, yes she is!
