Lots of experimenting with new materials here, also some scribble faces and quickly drawn “step-above-a-scribble” face LOL. Starting to learn what supplies I like working with the best and others I need to practice more with. Also finding out just how important paper is for different mediums! For example, 100 lb presentation card stock is AMAZING for markers! Toned paper and craft paper is perfect for black and white china markers. Flat canvas and old vinyl album covers are great for collage mixed media. I really love working on watercolor paper however NOT when using markers like copic as it sucks up all the ink.
My most recent discovery is Karen Campbell of Awesome Art School. I am having so much fun with her current #FunFabFaces challenge. She puts out a video every Friday on YouTube Our goal is to draw 100 faces in 100 days (or even one a week, whatever you want!) This is also a very supportive and educational group.
I have been combining my 100 Faces Challenge with my Jane Davenport Supplies me class… they go very well together 🙂
I started taking art classes online. My first two I am sharing here. They are by Jane Davenport (Supplies Me and I Heart Drawing). I’m still participating and finally learning to draw! I decided to learn to draw before I turn 50 LOL. I will also be making folders for my classes on Pinterest.
