Tim Forhan has an amazing eye for colored pencil drawings, as shown in this drawing of the Spruce Goose.  This plane was released from Hughes Aircraft Company in 1947 as a heavy transport flying boat, and was named the 'Hughes H-4 Hercules'.  The airplane was a prototype that made its first flight on November 2, 1947 and never flew again, nor was it ever reproduced.  The plane was nicknamed 'Spruce Goose' by the media because it was the largest plane (bird) ever built, in its day, and was made of wood due to wartime restrictions on the use of metal (aluminum).  Even though the nickname is Spruce Goose, the plane is actually made, almost entirely, of birch wood, not spruce.  The critics of this larger-than-life flying boat was also referred to as the 'Flying Lumberyard', which its creator, Howard Hughes, was less than enthused about.  This colored pencil drawing has really conveyed the massive size of this aircraft and has concurrently, captured a beautiful sunset on the wild open sea.  No details have been spared in this beautiful pencil drawing, by Tim.
