Stephanie I've just borrowed Drawing on the Right Side of the brain from the library. Apparently there is a DVD that has the same lessons on it. Have you got that as well. I'm wondering if it is worth purchasing it. Or just to work through the book.
Wow, you are really, really talented. I'm a little intimidated here. My work seems so childish compared to most. I am trying to learn on my own, so I am trying hard just to have fun and not put too much pressure on myself. Have you ever considered posting some step by step works in progress? Those are sooo helpful to me. One of the problems I have is knowing how to start and how to progress through a painting. Like, do you start with the background or do you start with the main focal point? Do you build up layers of color or do you try to mix the color you want to start out with? These are issues that I struggle with.
Hi Stephanie! Do you smell something fishy? I was so inspired by your beautiful fish paintings, that I just had to do one myself. Check out my page to see my sunfish. He was so much fun that I'm going to do some more fish! I am currently in love with aboriginal dot art and colorful fish lend themselves so well to being bedazzled with dots! Thanks for your lovely work. Keep 'em coming!
