book illustration progress

I've been making a good bit of progress over the last few weeks on the Yellowstone book illustrations. Last week, I started scanning several of the paintings and laying out the book in InDesign. One realization I had as I started doing this was that the book needed more quiet space. Having spread after spread of full on painting was overwhelming. So I'm going to do finishing touches in Photoshop. Here's some of that process. Also turning on comments now! :)
