Robin and Marian

Drew learned a lesson about working in the movie industry on this one.  He painted the picture in oils, in the classic style he loved.  The client loved the piece, but as he learned was a common practice, they wanted some changes, drastic changes, and quick.  The nature of working in classic oils is that it takes a long time to dry, and plugs the canvas making it impossible to make changes indistinguishable as well as impossible to have dry quickly.  Changes are a way of life in the business and a way had to be found to make a picture that would reproduce beautifully, be capable of being changed radically and readily and still maintain the durability that Drew demanded.  After struggling through on this one it became rare that Drew would work in oils again on a movie poster.
