Here’s a video of my latest visit to fellow artist Aaron Miller’s Figurative Illustration Workshop in Chicago, Illinois. This session featured our buff model, Kay, dressed up as a Mexican wrestler. Special thanks to my wife, Silvia, for her wonderful camera work and Aaron Miller for running the workshop.

The brushes I used in this video were supplied to me by MyArtScape so that I might give them feedback, and if I enjoyed using them, to let others know so. For this painting session, I didn’t use every single brush in the set. But I did very much enjoy using the brushes. The quality is excellent. And although I’m not very accustomed to using long stem brushes, I handled them just fine. I only wish there were a few smaller, as in finer, sized brushes in the set. To do some of the fine detail work, I had to switch to using my usual Loew-Cornell brushes.
