Not for sale.

This is a painting I did for my daughter's birthday. The reference is from the finals of the UPA nationals in 2009. Her team is Element playing against the "skirts". Unfortunately, they came up short to secure second place in the tournament.

Dragon Boat Painting

Cat's Dragon Boat Painting is finished. Thanks to Brian McElaney for permission to paint from his photo. I used the reference after rotating and cropping it some. The drawing is straight from the photo with some details obviously omitted and simplified. I exaggerated the brightest parts of the photo to be yellow sunshine.
