Hopefully this blog will inspire you to have confidence in your creative abilities and give you courage to learn and try new things. Try something NEW. It could be just what you need to make you a better artist, or a better person. My latest obsession is Amigurumi Crochet, and my favorite subjects right now are Hollywood Icons, Famous People and Characters.

Day 1: 29 Faces in September

Here's #1:  Done in Gouache in my sketchbook, so the water made the page buckle a bit since it is not intended for really wet applications.  I find that if I paint on a piece of paper, it gets lost or put away someplace.  If I do it in my sketchbook, it is there, permanently, unless I tear it out, since it is a bound book.  I started out with watercolor pencil, but lost the whites, so went to gouache.  This is one of my students.  I take pictures of them every week in class, so I have lots of reference photos to use.
