DisneyWorld Animal Kingdom Day 3 and Day 8

Once again I attended a Dalvero Academy DisneyWorld Reportage Workshop Aug/1-Aug/10, 2012. Eight, long, hot, wonderful days drawing in the Disney parks alongside a group of very talented artists and our brilliant leaders Veronica Lawler and Margaret Hurst

There is so much to see and draw there never seems like enough time to get it all in. With Ronnie and Marg it is thunmbnail, thumbnail, thumbnail to get the most out of the days. We are all required to sketch every parade that comes through the parks. There is always a bit of "high anxiety" as these parades are moving fast.

Disney—Magic Kingdom Day 2, Day 5 and Day 7

It's the most magical place on earth.

 Main Street Electrical Light Parade—When the lights go out it is time to start drawing. It's really kind of crazy. Dip pen, colored pencil and Neo-Color II.

Cinderella's castle—dip pen, Neo-color II and colored pencil. Midday—very hot!!! Sitting in very small shade amount of shade under a popcorn stand...until they made me move for Celebrate a Dream Come True parade. A parade I love and sing the song everytime it comes through while I try capture sketch it on paper...

Walt Disney created EPCOT the "Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow". We sketched at Epcot on day 1 and day 6.

It's exhausting going to Disney. I know exactly how this guy felt.
