Two Sweet Friends


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.

They're both adorable and they are going to look great against one of your gorgeous backgrounds. I also love the girl below too.

These two friends are realy sweet.
I can't paint whimsy faces on a larger format, but when the whole body should me round 4 or 5 inches tall, there's nothing better then whimsy face with button like nose :)
On larger paintings I just can't do it :)
I loved Norah's faces class just because Sharon made us paint on small canvases, so we could not work on details :)))
These two will look gorgeous on one of your lovely backgrounds.

Hope they will be friends for life. Your girls are so great, they have your unique flare to them and what's not to love about that. Glad you are enjoying the class so much :-)

Martha- these girls are so pretty and I think you and your style shine through in your work. I'm glad you continue to develop but just know that we enjoy all the work you've done:)
