Life Book 2015 - Behind, but working!


This is Week 4's project and took me 6-8 hours to complete (including the sketching).  It didn't come out exactly as I'd hoped, but I went sort of 'rogue' on the suggested body position of the ballerina figure.  This one works, but I'd change some things if I tried this one again.  In any case, I learned some things including you can use gesso to paint and it mixes with gouache well.  I also learned that little doodles and patterns can turn something plan into something enchanting.  The whole point to these projects is to learn the medium, get used to using new tools, and to have fun being regularly creative!  

This piece was created through a class offered by Tamara Laporte from Willing Arts Ltd. For more information, visit this link: www.willowing.org.
