I wish you all a happy and healthy 2014, full of joy and creativity.
For my first post of the year, I want to show you someone else's work!
A friend expressed an interest in learning how to paint in watercolour, so she came over for an afternoon teaching session, with her sister, who didn't want to paint, but loves looking at art.
My friend wanted to paint a giraffe, so I suggested we draw a small one and a larger one. That way we could practice on the small, before it got transferred to the large.
Here is her practice effort
and this is second effort, as far as we had it finished on the day. I think it's going to be beautiful.
While the sisters were waiting for the background washes to dry, I painted a quick snow scene for the one who doesn't paint - as a memento of the day.
It's only small, 7" x 10"
I hope the New Year brings you joy, the chance to try something new - and the chance to shine. God bless.
