JULY THEME - Pet Portraits - wild or domestic, you choose

Friday, June 28, 2024

Hello Creative Friends

My artists were challenged in June, but in a good way, as I offered instruction as to how to Get Resemblance in our portraits. Thats tricky stuff. But it doesn't mean we can't also be expressive at the same time. Its not Either/Or. Realistic OR Expressive.

For instance....I taught how to get the proportions between the eyes and nose. Once you have that, well.....the mouth is much easier to place.  I will get some of my students paintings and studies and create a post soon. Amazing work was done....using several different techniques. There was truly something for everyone...beginners to more experienced.

But lets talk now about What's Next!

Most animals are earthy in color, but we will be mixing Earthy with a Pop of Color

Here are a few of my paintings and as you can see, Animals can be Colorful! ....remember, I am a cat lady, thats why I paint them often, but I also love me some owls, and plenty of other animals. All animals of the kingdom are great teachers....but I will happily offer insects and the creepy crawly types over to those who love them most! Ew.







And here's our schedule this month.....another one of those 5 week months, so we will have a vacation the last week and come back in August. 



Care to join us?  Get in touch asap as classes start this coming week.


Meanwhile, I am wishing you a healthy, fun and safe summer.

Be Creative. It's Good for the Soul!
Blessings, Joanie
