This week's class was about faces and their proportions and using complementary colours to create shading and tone. The face was done in class with pencil crayons. I wanted to finish the drawing but I don't own any pencil crayons. I have all sorts of paints, pastels, markers, a whole assortment of art supplies. But no pencil crayons.
The drawing was done using a newspaper photo as refernce. Unfortunately, I don't know which newspaper or any way of crediting the photo. It was in a bag of an assortment of photos the instructor had. I was happy to sketch Alice Walker. She's someone I've always admired for her activist work and her writings.
I scanned the floating head into my iPad and finished up on Procreate. I'm pretty happy with the results.

These classes have been great, although I do miss not meeting up with my fibre friends Wednesday nights. If you guys are still reading my blog - Hi!
Week three watercolour class - This is a tree I sketched from a photo, then painted with watercolours. We had to look at the photograph and decide on one primary colour and then use the complementary colour as the accent.
For the desktop calendar, I scanned the painting into my iPad and reworked it in a series of painting apps.
