Just two paintings in my sketchbook. I've been hacking away at another painting and its relaxing to break away and just play around in the trusty sketchbook.

Just a taste of my trip to see Mucha's Slav Epics. They are in the original chateau where he worked on them (because there is no gallery large enough to accommodate them in Prague) and even then its difficult to see them.
So you can estimate the scale, I got as close to the canvas as I could with the timer on my camera and the booties you have to where to protect the floor trying to trip me. But, the castle itself doesn't appear at all hospitable or like there are anyone's masterpieces housed there. I still need to sort through the pictures of the paintings themselves before I can upload a folder for people to grab. It's on the way. Until then, na zdravi (cheers)!
By the way, this tourist map was the only map I could find of the place, so I'm pretty proud of myself for finding the paintings at all.
Just an old print from Advanced Media last semester. I'd thought I would just throw it up here anyways. Now, I know that it is a view of Praszky Hrad and St. Vitus' Cathedral. I basically walked through here a few days a week on my way to class.
