Small sample of drawings from entire class.
There were about 18 of us in class, and Julie got us feeling comfortable with out "can-barely-draw-a-stick-figure-much-less-a-face" preconceived ideas about drawing a face. She broke each lesson down into simple steps and the basic shapes that form the foundation of a face.
A bit of my own work from the class. From pencil sketches to painting a whole face!
Julie is very laid back and reassuring in her teaching style, she insists you cannot make a mistake, anything can be corrected with some gesso and paint (true!) and I couldn't believe how awesome everyone's work was after the first hour!
My faces are the top 3 from the right...yes, even the ugly green girl LOL.
I'll admit I had some serious drawing envy going on at times, and it's so true what they say in an art class: the person's work next to or across from you is ALWAYS better than yours (perception not reality of course!) LOL.
But I was there to have fun and learn the techniques, not necessarily make ready-to-frame art that day. I am so excited to put what I learned to work in my art journals and even my quilting! If you're not already familiar with Julie's blog (and podcast!) I highly recommend you check it out..... so much fabulous inspiration there.
