Hello. Welcome. I remember many years ago I was doing various evening classes and I had signed up to a general craft class. Imagine my horror, and all the other ladies, when the teacher handed us all charcoal pencils and asked us to draw the tulips!! Uhhhhhh. There were protests. Many protests and threats of leaving but, paid your money, takes your chances. No one left and a few picture recognisable as tulips resulted. My feelings were much the same when faced with Clare Lloyd's post over at PaperArtsy. I managed to ignore it previously but the title and post suggests that this is a regular feature so I have decided to succumb.......
Because of my previous success drawing a tulip I decided a charcoal pencil was the way to go and because of my general non-success with drawing a piece of plain white paper was a good place to start. Shock horror she looks vaguely human. I am the subject of alien bodysnatching. Glad the alien can draw LOL......
Sorry, due to the shock I didn't take any more photo's. Perhaps less is a blessing here. If you are laughing may I respectfully ask that you keep it to yourself because for the woman who can't draw fish this is a result! I used Fresco Finish Rose and Butternut, charcoal for her hair and highlights, or would that be lowlights. Ah yes, shadows!! The galaxy markers were still out so eyes and lips. The background is Fresco Finish Limelight, a Prima stencil, a splat stamp from Kort og Godt and some edging by DI Walnut Stain. I used the letter stamp from LPC003 on her body. Let me know what you think, but be gentle with me. It's the first person I have ever made.
