Heart Friends

Well, I am back in the land of the living with my surgery and it was no fun at all. But yesterday after lunch I started to emerge. It's nice to have that over with.

This is actually a piece I started way back when I did one of my first workshops with Wyanne and we started painting these little girls but I never finished it. The day before my surgery I worked on it most of the day and put some finishing touches on it yesterday. I actually like the way Wyanne teaches you to draw the bodies with making little paper dolls with brads that you can shape into any position. It's helpful and I think I will pull out those paperdoll templates again and use them. This is an 11 x 14 canvas and I put black dots around the sides and used my copic air sprayer for the stencils at the top.

Martha...this is just too cute!! Love the skinny little bodies, with your lovely faces!! Now, that is a super idea...making paper dolls with joints to pose for sketches. I will have to try to do that...it is hard to get a pose just right by using your imagination. I need a "visual aid"! So glad you are feeling better and back to art again!

The painting is so adorable! I love what you did. I'm so glad that you enjoyed the workshop and got a lot out of it. And you taught me something...I've got to go check into a copic air sprayer. Very cool.

Glad you are doing better and creating.
