This was a very nice walk through of the professional process. It is one thing to pick up a new medium and quite another to understand the high end process. Things like stretching the paper for watercolors would be something going blind into the process you wouldn't necessarily know to do.  This also highlights the many step process of making art, which non-artist tend to not think about.  I have learned a lot from this and thank you both for sharing your art and production process.

Thank you for the tutorial. I really like your concept for the suits, and the way you use your media in your work, something I've been doing with acrylics, and I thought might work well with my "Oops!" piece as I intend to finish that one in oils.

An amazingly thorough step by step. It's easy to forget how much time and effort goes into creating art when using traditional mediums when you're used to painting in digital. My love and respect for your work has increased tenfold!

I very much enjoyed the image in my ignorance of the process, but with this detailed walk-thru I appreciate it all the more.  Your mastery of technique demands respect.  Very glad to be watching.  Thanks for sharing.
