The final 15 min of a 1hr drawing session sped up to 3min.
So, here is my first video recording of a drawing I did in Photoshop CS6. This drawing may become a small detail (part of a sketch book page) of a larger illustration I started working on a year ago. I, then, abandoned the illustration (I got stuck on what to put on the Sketchbook page.) And now,. I am attempting to finish the illustration...soon!

The pencil sketch is my interpretation of the unknown young woman who posed for the silhouette on the left. The silhouette was created by an unknown person during the 1800's.Library Company of Philadelphia this September in support of the current Ephemera Exhibit. More information about the exhibit coming soon!

Finally, the painting is at a stage worthy of a detail shot. Unfortunately, the gloss of the oil paint did not cooperate with my camera. Regardless, the glow effect in the painting that I am pursuing is coming along.

The painting is going through several subtle changes as I continue to study the flowers and it's leaves. One can see the unique evolution, specifically the wing-like thingees, the bleeding heart flowers (the pink flowers) goes though as they blossom.

A lot of calculation were made to create a properly scaled digital tablet. I am surprised how close to square it is.

To my good fortune, I have a few bleeding heart flowers growing in my yard. I plucked and studied a stem of leaves and discovered how poorly I interpreted my photo reference. I don't have access to any poppy flowers, but I can tell you that I discovered big differences in leaf type between the different poppy species.
