For today's tip, I'm going to start with my favorite, skirts. More costume cheat sheet coming in the near future.

Thank guys for coming out yesterday, it was a blast. This is "Tea cups date night", my second painting of Mickey and Minnie on a date. I do love having a fun romantic day with Norm at Disneyland, how about you? What's your favorite date spot at the park?
"Bon Appetit" is my newest painting for Wonderground in celebration of Food and Wine Festival in Epcot. If you're in the area, you should stop by and see the festival. It's filled with yummy food and goodness.
For today's tip, I'm posting my painting process. With gouache, I usually paint back to front, general to detail.
