CGMW notes






Master painters I like:

Edwin Lord Weeks
Gerome
Sargent
Beksinski
Frederick Arthur Bridgman
Leon BellyGustav Bauernfeind
William Logsdail

Themes:

underwater
cliffs
space
construction
colonies
space stations
city in the sky
industrial
alien
organic
bones
dry

*try to think of a visual language, ie. industrial, sleek, rusty-tech, along with a descriptive location (dry, jungle, clouds) and make that into a theme.

**brushes will be added to the cgmw site and not the blog
