In the art world, one artist stands out to me to capture such great events. The late great Bob Khun. He was ,in my opinion, one of the best wildlife artists. He didn't paint photo real, but he captured so much in his pieces. I love how one can examine his brush strokes and almost look into the painting and see his thought process. As far as sketching....whew! Beautiful pencil work! Some of the best I have ever seen. The confidence and love for drawing is clearly visible.
This is piece was very inspired in his spirit.

Irene Gallos great pictures of Gregory Manchess. Greg has always been one of my favorite painters, I absolutely love his work. I love watching Greg paint, its like Zen to me. Very hypnotic, mesmerizing and beautiful. He has a wonderful download for those of you interested. He just recently fininshed participating in a illustration master class with James Gurney and several other incredible artists. Reading Jims blog led me to painting Greg. Now back to deadlines......sigh
