Creative Update

I’ve been busy this last week, even if I was feeling pretty awful.

I got TWO of Holly’s How to Revise Your Novel lessons done:

And I’m plugging along on lesson 8.

And then, I’ve fallen in love with watching artists paint in gouache, so much so that my husband is getting me a set of gouache paints for my birthday.

I especially love watching artists paint over their own sketches.

So, in order to be able to do that when my birthday comes, I have to have some sketches, right?

Here’s the first:

Just a photo – I know it’s blurry, but it’s the best I could manage without fighting with my scanner.

It came from this photo someone posted on Pinterest.

I intend to try painting it in gouache.

And you might note that these are studies and practice works FOR ME.

I don’t own the copyright to the original photo.

I just want to practice and get better at painting. *smile*

How was your week?
