Boris and Julie

This is our most recent painting. It was commissioned by a client in the Ukraine. Both Julie and I worked on the painting and it was especially appealing to us because our client wanted to have a scene depicting an ancient Peruvian scene. Lots of fun!

I just finished this privately commissioned painting. It is a companion piece for Julie's "A Rose For Peter", which appeared in this blog a few months ago. It was so much fun to do our own versions of the same character. We are so lucky to do art as our job!

Drawing the human figure from life is probably the Number One most important exercise (besides cardio fitness, of course!) for illustrators. Even if you're painting regularly, drawing from life challenges your brain to solve problems that will come in handy with finished work later on. We went to a sketch group earlier this week to practice our skills.
