Something New

For Week 25 of Life Book, Juliette Crane gave a class on how to paint whimsy animals. I decided to paint a bird. Mostly because I like how free birds are and because birds just speak to me symbolically.

Her class was only an hour long, but boy was it comprehensive. I learned a lot in that hour and I hope I put it to good use. Not only did I learn how to paint a character, I learned more about layering. I hope it shows in my painting.

I had a lot of fun with this painting. I hope it shows! I had such a good time, I plan on making more.

    I REALLY, REALLY like your bird…reminds me a bit of Chagall.

  2. Saffron Says:

    Love the bird! Definitely a character! :) I especially like his/her blue eyes.
