• San Diego Opera - sketching Cinderella

    San Diego Opera - sketching Cinderella

    It was an amazing night of music and art at the San Diego Opera! I drew as fast as I could to catch all the action and ended up with pages of gesture drawings. I used some for this scene of Cinderella and her stepsisters. Then, following my theme for the year, I turned them all into pigs. The gorgeous set and costumes by Dan Potra were inspiring. I used photos to paint this simplified version of the Don Magnifico Emporium.

    San Diego Opera - sketching Great Scott

    Last May I joined a group of illustrators sketching a rehearsal of Great Scott - a wonderful experience! I couldn't keep myself from drawing a few opera pigs as well. 

    Cinderella will be at the San Diego Opera next week. :)
