Practice! Practice! Practice!

I've always wanted to be able to draw people. All my life .... But never could get it right. Now, I know this one is not spot on for my friend (pict was borrowed from Facebook) but at least her nose looks like a nose, her mouth is a mouth, and the cheeks they do look like cheeks. Compared to the way I used to draw, I've come a long way. The features before, well lets say they looked like they had some plastic surgery that had gone way wrong! I'm proud of this! I'm still going to work on the shading some more and her eyes need some more work but I like it. To get any better than we are each day we just have to Do. Do whatever it is that we do so that tomorrow we might be able to DO it better.

Multimedia painting

She is painted over a collaged background using acrylic paints and Caron d'Ache watercolor crayons. I had fun painting her... I have to learn more about facial shading. I do wish Kelly Ray Roberts would offer an online class. I love her work!

Life Book Class

I'm also taking the year long class by Tamara Laporte called Life Book. This is my first drawing for the first assignment. I've colored her face with an app on my phone, but today will paint her and may or may not leave the crown on her. I've got a lot to learn and this class is wonderful! Tam is wonderful!! Ready to paint and play today.... Just don't want to get outta this warm cozy bed right now!!

Creatively Made

Jeanne Oliver is offering this class. She is great! I love her handmade clothing line, she makes fabulous ruffled purses, and her art is so sweet! Her vintage style caught my eye a long time ago- never dreamed I'd get to take an online class of hers! I'd hoped for one and now I get to! I'm so excited!!! Starts on Monday .... One happy girl!
