Hey guys! I wanted to show you the cover I have been working on for my 2014 sketchbook. The sketchbook will features all of the preliminary drawing I have been working on for my Daughters of Oceanus series this past year. I hope to have it ready for preorder by the end of the year. More images to come soon!

Klytie was a water-nymph and in love with Apollo, who made her no return. So she pined away, sitting all day long upon the cold ground, with her unbound tresses streaming over her shoulders. Nine days she sat and tasted neither food nor drink, her own tears and the chilly dew her only food. She gazed on the sun when he rose, and as he passed through his daily course to his setting; she saw no other object, her face turned constantly on him. At last, they say, her limbs rooted in the ground, her face became a sunflower, which turns on its stem so as always to face the sun throughout its daily course; for it retains to that extent the feeling of the nymph from whom it sprang.

The latest painting in my Daughters of Oceanus series. See her in person this coming week in the IlluXCon main show!
Some working shots of my latest Daughters of Oceanus piece for IlluXCon next week!
In the workshop I will be demonstrating techniques that I have used when studying the portrait artists from the Rococo period. I depict a portrait of one of the daughters of Oceanus, Keto, from greek mythology. She is a Naiad Nymph who's name means "sea monster" in ancient Greek. For this portrait I wanted to stay true to the classical portraits of the 18th century while adding a fantastic element, the baby sea dragon, as a twist.
You will learn how I create a fantasy portrait using these methods in one of my favorite mediums. While I will be working in traditional oils for this painting, keep in mind that many of the principles I will be showing here can also be applied to other mediums as well. Issues can be ordered here!
