Although Spring is officially a few weeks away, I get Spring Fever when I look a this happy lady. I definitely get lighthearted when I look back at the year so far and realize all that I have accomplished.
I have had many art teachers who've said "You can take workshops and classes till the cows come home, but if you don't practice the techniques, you won't progress" or something along those lines! So far this year I've kept to my goal of art everyday, and learned by doing how not to repeat my same mistakes over again. (If only life were that simple... well, maybe it IS!)
Lessons learned from my wet-into-wet studies were applied to the underside of the parasol, and the workshop "Master Disaster" really came in handy when working the sunlight across her shawl! I've used stenciling, blending, pulling, (and praying!) and I'm pleased with this Springtime Attitude painting. Now, ON TO THE NEXT ONE! :)
I think it is important to share our process with others, just as we gain from watching other artists work.
