Learning Art is Fun!

Big shout out to Tam at Willowing.org and her Art, Heart and Healing course. I am braving the first lesson this week - a portrait and multi-media journal page.

Started the sketch yesterday and stopped there.


Needed sleep and to bolster my courage to take on shading next!


Wow, that took a lot of focus. The time just flew by today and I learned a lot.


Here she is completed, with the background behind her.


Super close up :)


No longer a blank page... This is Fun!

More to come from this project...

Now I must go, because Maverick has heated up some leftover chicken curry (will post the recipe soon) and then we are heading out for a date night! :)

Wow, those eyes are extraordinary: magical, fascinating and a bit Mona Lisa-ish (if that's a word, lol). Great painting, and I love seeing how it has emerged.

Isn't it amazing what we can do under Tammy's tuition?! Glad you got started and are doing so well. It will keep you going now AEDM is over.
