Girls, Girls, Girls

I have been practicing drawing different types of girls.  These are the girls before I have added color.

Unfortunately this one was on the reverse side of the girl I posted yesterday.  Note to self:  When using Copics do not place drawings on both sides of a page.  This was heavy watercolor paper so I was surprised but those Copics soak into the paper.

My Girl

This is homework from another online class I am taking called Drawing the Girls taught by Martha Lever.
 I colored this one with Copic markers.  The background is Versafine through a stencil by Tim Holtz.  After looking at this one for awhile I decided I needed more interest.  So I added tissue paper to the background, silk paint and gesso.  The stencil on the shirt is by Tim Holtz.

Frolicaholic Class With Jane Davenport

I have been taking a journaling class online called Frolicaholic with Jane Davenport. I have taken this class before but finally Jane has made it live. If you have never taken a class with Jane you are missing a wonderful treat. She is a great teacher.
This week I worked on making my journal and cover. The journal is made with one of my favorite papers called Stonehenge. It is a great printmaking paper that takes pencils and acrylic paint well.

I painted my journal with Ceramcoat and Deco Art Traditions paint. The stencil is by Michelle Ward. I shaded the face on the back cover using Pitt Big Brush markers.

Mermalicious Class With Jane Davenport

I was lucky enough to attend a class taught by Jane Davenport this weekend at Donna Downey Studios in Hunterville, NC. Boy was it fun to spend a whole long weekend creating art. Jane is a great teacher and a lot of fun. We created a book of beautiful mermaid creatures. Here is one of my pages in progress.
