Temperatures have been as high as 80 degrees here in Chicago lately, which is extremely unusual at this time of year. It's been nice to work with the windows open and get out of my "art cave"into the sunlight a little. In that spirit, here's a sunlit picture I painted for the recently released Dungeons and Dragons board game Lords of Waterdeep. It depicts a deal being made between a merchant and an adventurer. I managed to keep it a little more loose and painterly than usual and I was pleased with the results.
