I haven’t been able to show my quilting on this blog lately as I have been working on this baby quilt.
More of a painting than a drawing because I need to continue my pieces for the watercolor pencil workshop I am taking. This was done from a copyright free photo I found on morguefile.com
I am having a blast in the class. Some of my classmates are doing amazing things with just three pencils.. Not me.
When I first read the this weeks lesson for the watercolor pencil workshop I am taking with Kate Johnson, I had a moment (okay many moments) of pure panic. I have never painted before.. Why did I think I can do this?? With a self pep talk, and Kate very kindly talking me down I took a breath and…. today worked up the courage to actually put pencil and water to paper. This was my result.
Our photography class is coming to an end, and our assignment this week was loads of fun. Taking closeups using the macro setting on our camera or a macro lens as the case may be. I love how this one turned out. I put water and oil in a clear bowl with a swirled pattern and set the whole thing on top of a piece of hot pink cardstock.
