Detail from a watercoloring painting inspired by a Paint Your Heart and Soul 2021 lesson by Sillier Than Sally.
The face was inspired by one of Angela Kennedy’s Let’s Face it 2020 lessons. Graphite drawing.
Above shows the cover of my Initiate Book for becoming a certified Intentional Creativity teacher. Nine months (plus) of completing the curriculum of painting, writing and deep diving to become a certified Intentional Creativity teacher. It was a lot of work but so worth 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 a Jeanne-Marie Webb lesson for Let’s face it Week 36. I used two different images to create this trio. 8×10 on Yes Board.
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!
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!
Inspired by Week #11’s lesson in Let’s Face It 2017. Thanks to Kara Strachan Bullock for a fun lesson!
