Here are two little friends that I think I might cut out and place on some sort of background in my journal as Tam did in her class. I try so hard to paint whimsey girls but for some reason the realistic always tries to push through. I love the faces Tam paints and she says everything needs to be exaggerated--bigger heads and eyes etc. She did a little button nose which might help more but I usually try and paint the nose. It's the hardest part for me. Well, the mouth is hard too but you just keep drawing and erasing, drawing and erasing until she emerges. She is always there.
