    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.
