Jeanne de Valois

The final-ish. Crit tomorrow with some possible changes ensuing after. I need to practice up on my painting shiny diamonds and stones and surfaces.

Working it out.

The piece is based on Jeanne de Valois who created quite a scandal for the french monarchy right before the revolution. She claimed she was a close confidant/ lover of Marie Antoinette's in order to obtain money and favors from the Cardinal. Not nice at all but really daring.

Just some process work for an illustration. The final is due on Monday, so that will be up soon.

Old Keys

Just playing around with antique keys.

Stop staring...

Just a tiny flower shop in Vienna.


Kampa "Island" is really just a piece of land cut off from the rest of Mala Strana by the Charles River. Regardless, it's a relaxing place to just sit and sketch. So, this is just one of the few statues there. 

Brno time.

I was at a working cloister just outside of Brno in Moravia. I got a tour of the some of the church, but there are definite restrictions where the nuns are that are forbidden. There's all sorts of little buildings and the careless and adventurous kid in me wanted to explore. But, nuns are kinda scary, so no go.

Just a view of a church in Brno, Moravia. In case you were wondering, it rained nearly every day that I was in the Czech Republic until the very last few days before I had to leave.
