Leesa's Faux Painting Website

Here's a link to Leesa's Faux Painting Website. I'm going to see if she offers classes.
I've been doing some research online for the book I'm illustrating and found some more reference sites. Many of you may know of these, but just in case, I'm blogging them anyway. Corbis is one. (there are many online stock photography sites that have some good images to use as referral, as long as you don't break ethics and copy the images.)
Another place recently discussed on an online forum is Google's book search. Many books have wonderful images that can be seen there. I'm not too thrilled with the idea of copyright violations that must occur due to it, but as far as reference material, it's a good source. As always..keep in mind that copyrights are not to be violated. Here's a page from a book that I have. Google does limit the pages available to view (good for authors and illustrators who don't want their copyright broken and folks using their work in an unlimited fashion)
