wearing hats indoors cuts down on the glare and improves color perception.

|just tracing - only takes 1-2 hours. making notes on where there are hard, soft, crisp, lost edges. riley style!! :D|
I realize later my notes are almost useless. lol
|this takes another 5 hours. very tedious. Values and color picking.|
|Refining edges is the hardest stage. the last stage took another 5 hours. gained a lot of sensitivity on our to use the brush. Nothing can help you except.. perseverance. Total took probably 10-12 hours.|
Last week I attended another free workshop featuring Carlo Arelanno. It was held at the Inland Empire Art Institute. Carlo is a fun guy - he told a lot of jokes. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop.
