Finally I have something to post! This is a painting that is in progress of a young model. I did paint a couple of times last week but I don’t like the results well enough to post. I attempted a model and her baby (not my idea) and I will spare you that painting. Note to self: babies are cute but do not make good models! They don’t sit still and don’t take direction at all.
This weekend I am going to teach my first class. My church is having their annual Women’s Retreat and a few months ago the person organizing it asked me if I would teach a class at the retreat. When things are months away I find it’s easier to say “yes” and that’s what I did. Now my class is two days away. It’s going to be a class on sketching, I though a painting class would be too complicated for an hour and a half session at the retreat. I have some notes and I have my sketch books that I made on our recent vacation. The purpose of the class will be to get people interested in sketching on a regular basis, whether it be a travel diary, flowers, people, anything. Just sketch. Ha, that can be the slogan for the class. Get it? Instead of “Just Do It”. 🙂
