Faces with Traci
Then adding collaged shapes that you drew separately on newsprint and cut out - to give you some structured shapes to paint on later.
This is the part where I get concerned about how on earth this is going to turn into something "good".
OK. So here is what I think of the whole project:
VERY fun and very enjoyable. For this first attempt I basically followed what Traci gave as a path. But I discovered that I like MY faces and figures a whole lot more.
So I am really looking forward to the next several of these paintings that are MY creations. Which is, of course, exactly what Traci would advise.
I do like the colorful headdress and flowers and the intense amount of details in this part of the project. Normally I wouldn't have selected such a variety of color - but it does make it a lot more interesting.
I have learned that I am MUCH more comfortable using pens and markers to draw with rather than paintbrushes - but learning to use new tools is part of the adventure! It was a GREAT CLASS. I wonder what on-line class I will take next? barbara
