I know that’s a corny headline but it’s all I could come up with 😉 Work with me here!! ❤ So now that I’ve been taking this art class for a few weeks and I’m getting in a groove, I picked a picture I’ve been dying to draw and since my teacher thinks I’d do well with colored pencils I knew this was one the to start attempting color with:

I found it on pinterest and immediately tagged in my “Pictures to Draw” board. I think it’s seriously stunning!!

The first week I did really lightly guidelines to get the basic shape down.

Then when I got home I did the basic hatching of colors to give it some life!

Week 2 in class I finally got to play with mixing colors and finding the right tones to create the end color I was looking for. This is phase one of that!

Week three Is more work and more guide lining with color the rest of the hair. I’m hoping to finish off the ends and start on the top of her hair next week! ❤

So here’s to my goal of going back and taking classes and proof that it’s great for someone who is creative to never give up on learning new things!!

What are you working on these days? Are you trying something new too?

Love Always,
