the last "dinner"


this is a Spaniard feast typical dinner!

I did these yesterday for fun from a really cool fashion site with amazing vintage pictures. Is kind of fun for a change to do something different than the daily routine. I also have been painting during my lunch hour, for practice some thumbnails of Disney backgrounds from the classics, I think by doing it, is going to be a really help full way to see how these amazing artists did it. Oh and now I'm official at Disney, no more trainee or apprentice, now I have ... even more pressure, but that is a great motivation!

Love the last dinner. Classic. I wish I could handle my figures so simply. I'm constantly doing a shot with tiny figures saying, "What would Bove do."
