Looking forward to drawing at the museum this weekend. Ive been busy designing websites and painting banners all week, i need a break!

I’m also just about finished with a book on Boris Vallejo’s technique. Lots of tracing paper! I wish my art teachers had drilled into my head at a much earlier age that it is ok to use references. Vallejo writes that in commercial illustration speed is a major concern, the more painting done well the first time the more money was earned. Reading over his traditional technique I am reminded of how spoiled we are with Photoshop.

Though… I now really want to give oils another try despite it all.
