Last night I sketched from a portrait in one of my Leyendecker books. I have a current illustration I am really trying to match to Leyendecker's style. It is hard because he is so good and I am just at the drawing stage. I'll post it here at some point and let you decide if its even close.
Also, check out Donald Jurney's new blog. Awesome landscape artist with gorgeous compositions, colors and atmosphere. I have limited number of landscape artists who I really follow but Donald is definitely one.
