A purely delightful 2 painting day, The first was at this drive-able mountain pass in the Italian Alps. Everywhere you looked hurt your face from sheer awesomeness, 3 hours in the field.

    Beautiful work – as are all your paintings. Can you recommend any good books or tutorials to a photoshop painting beginner with a wacom tablet and an eagerness to paint pretty things!?
