I took an on-line mini-course with Alisa Burke recently called Portrait Play. I took the course for inspiration rather than to learn anything, and every time I watch one of the videos I do get inspired to draw faces! Here are the latest ones from my sketchbook. I used a bold Sharpie to make the drawing, and then added a bit of watercolor.
Our homework from the January Westcoast Calligraphy Society meeting is to use gouache to letter the name of our hometown. After I take these to the next meeting, I might be able to give them away as bookmarks!
My sister, Dianne, made some fabulous bookmarks recently, and her use of pattern stamps inspired these. I've used a molding mat by Magenta, which I cut into small shapes to use as stamps. Thanks, Dianne!
