Detail from a watercoloring painting inspired by a Paint Your Heart and Soul 2021 lesson by Sillier Than Sally.
The poem is by Shiloh Sophia McCloud. The watercolor portrait is by me inspired by Katrina Koltes mini lesson for Let’s Face It 2020.
The face was inspired by one of Angela Kennedy’s Let’s Face it 2020 lessons. Graphite drawing.
Acrylic on canvas panel. Having fun playing with layers of paint and color.
I used the previously posted painting and created a digital piece with it.
When it is very cold (20 degrees) and a few snow flurries, it is a good time to play with color in the studio. Loosely inspired by the Emma Pettit activity for the Lifebook Wellness and Creativity Summit.
Inspired by Lesson 3 from A Veil of Wax class taught by Ivette Newport. The wax is till a bit cloudy in this photo but couldn’t wait to share her. I drew and painted her on a piece of watercolor board. I used Daniel Smith watercolor paints, charcoal pencil, colored pencil, white water-soluble oil paint, and encaustic wax; plus a little bling! I love this piece!
An unknown photographer on Pinterest was the inspiration for this mixed media painting created for Let’s Face It 2017. I am loving painting with bold color!
I began this portrait to work on skin tones using a different color combo; yellow ocher, burnt sienna, and raw umber. The bright reds are a combo of Naphthol Red Light and Red Oxide. My inspiration image came from Pinterest, although the model has red hair on the original photo. Kara Strachan Bullock of “Let’s Face It” fame posted this to her page to advertise the year-long portrait class “Let’s Face It”, which was a real blessing and encouragement! My second year of Kara’s course and it has been great; I feel I have learned a lot. Some of the year-long classes have some offerings that don’t resonate, but I am glad to say that almost all of Kara’s weekly offerings and assortment of teachers has been wonderful!
