Here’s a quick update on my art! It’s going amazing! I am so happy with how well it’s going.
Lesson 8 was”Lady of Shallot”Teacher was Deanna Strachan- Wilson. Subject- John Williams Waterhouse loved it!!
I love how sad the Lady of Shallot looks my favourite poem, song and painting.
Next lesson number 9- Teacher Juna, Subject- Rembrandt and we used Charcoal.
I was a little disappointed with how she turned out until l looked at her again the next day. That chin! Beautiful!
Lesson 10- Teacher was Sharon Harkness-Dobler. Subject- Henry Ossawa Tanner, and l copied Henry’s original painting and l had a ball! I love this one!
Henry’s original painting on my computer screen, Sharon’s on the wall in yellow and mine next to it! First time doing a still life!
Lesson 11- Impressionists are here!
Teacher- Kara Bullock, Subject- Mary Cassatt, loves this lesson too and lm going to frame her!
Mary Cassatt l used her face to recreate her painting, happy with how she turned out. I almost gave up!
And then there was lesson 12- Teacher- Lucy Chen, Subject- Matisse we had to do a Fauvism style painting a selfie! Not my favourite!!
I don’t love this but l did it. I’m finding when l push past “I don’t like it” l feel prouder of myself for having done it!
So that brings us up to date on my “Let’s Face it” course!
I am currently away camping in Brim Victoria, we are doing the Art Silo Tour, it’s over a 200 kilometres stretch and the unused unloved wheat silos are being transformed as giant canvases! Here is the Brim one!
I’ll come back tomorrow and post some more of them.
Happy Easter everyone and spare a thought for the reason behind the season. Jesus died for our sins.
