Well - not the best photo but this is my first attempt at illustration. I'm confident I can get better! :-) The lesson was to use only two colours - Never mind I used the mix-iest colours. It was wonderful working with great quality paints and paper AND brushes. It's been ages since I tried water colour - but it never worked so great. Quality is everything. I'm not happy with my drawing so I snuck out of class to try my own thing. I'll show that to you when it's done.
Last night I started an 8 session lesson on how to publish and work with interactive books - it will be a long time till that happens for me but at least I will have the beginnings and can research my self silly till my drawings/illustrations etc are up to speed. Who knows I might get more ideas than just children's books.
I must say - THANK YOU - for your patience with my long unexplained absences - actually they are explainable. Children and homeschooling. And now there are illustration classes for me and next fine art classes - for ME too! whoopee. Till then - I'm jammin. Making apricot jam that is - cross your fingers.
