Learning to Draw and a New Class

 (half way done...I think....)

I am enjoying learning to draw in Misty Mawn's amazing class Face to Face. 
This drawing above...(just as I went to take the picture,
I dropped my book and crumpled the page! lol!)
 I am working on her chin, it curves under and with her head tilted just a bit up,
I have to learn to shade to show the shape. 
There is much work yet to be done on her.
 
I have to tweak her nose over a bit I think, as her mouth is not quite lined up! 
Shading and placement!
That is what I am working on.  


This lady here is in process too...
And like many of my drawings, she has no hair! lol!
I find hair very hard. But I figure, once I understand the face more, 
I will be able to focus on hair. 
I have many drawings of bald ladies! lol!

I must say...the art I see participants doing in Misty's class is totally awesome! 
Misty herself is just such a special soul!  They all inspire me!

 ***********************
Announcement!
Yay!

What has been taking up most of my time though has been
video taping my new class at Creative Workshops.
It opens April 15th. 
I am excited about it!


Inspiration goodies!


In this class we create jewelry for your soul! 
Artful, affirming, helpful, and inspirational!
We learn to make our own focal pieces easily and
inexpensively with  this simple soldering technique.
I chose a Mother Mary Image as this necklace is about nurturing.
You can use your own artwork or any other images that speak to your theme and heart.


I am in process today of creating another one
with a completely different image and theme.
Next post or two and I will share it with you as well.
Wish me creative luck : )

Hugs and Happy Friday!
Terri

Terri you are so multi-talented!

You know, you could always make Soulful Necklaces in the beading pattern on a true Rosary, too - one of the two prayers is the Hail Mary....so I believe it would be appropriate. Not sure, but would be awesome - it already kinda LOOKS like one, you know?

Have a fabulous weekend!

Hugs.

I found myself admiring your art work. I find sketching such a difficult thing to do. As for your jewelry pieces, they are so beautiful and unique. You should make a rosary. Those beads would make such a beautiful and unusual rosary along with an image of Mary like the one you have and a lovely Cross.

You are SO brave to draw faces....truly one of the hardest things to do! I SO admire your talents, Terri. It seems that you are capturing these faces beautifully...great shadows and highlights, too.
Misty will be happy with your pieces ~ are you taking them to the class?
So THIS is what you've been up to, girlfriend! :)
Love

WOW!! you're so gifted! and I love the jewels too! As for my post: the card was for celebrating the 40th anniversery of my parents living in the village Apeldoorn. it is quite far from Paris, 5 hours drive...

Those necklaces are SO pretty! I wanted to take a class from Misty when she comes here in April that sounds pretty similar. Unfortunately it had already filled up, so maybe next time ;( You have a wonderful start!

your artwork is very good--you are doing do well in the class. I have always been drawn to faces and love to get lost in bringing out the life in them. your shadowing and highlighting are great!! Keep it up.
Oh the jewelry is so aptly named---being an old catholic girl--they really do speak to my soul.
