Just a Quick Post of my "Homework" for 21 Secrets:) I have been truly amazed at this Course. Seriously guys, where can you go and get 21 Art Classes, with excellent Instructors both Well Known and "Up and Coming" for such a great price? I still can't believe it!
I have been a bit Distracted by Life lately so I am trying to buckle down this week and Finish up the Classes I'm working on.
This first series is for the Lovely Danielle Daniel's class 'Unearthing'. I loved this Class! I watched her Video's at least four times each. It is so cool for me to see how everyone does things in their own way- has their own style and uses their own Favorite Colors. It really made me Stretch out of my Comfort zone.
It's scary to try to draw faces anyway- but to paint them in Acrylic was so New to me:)
So, this was my first one. I liked the background and the Tree, but I didn't really like how the Girl turned out. At least it was recognizable as a Human Female though....that was encouraging!
Oh - and that's a Bird she's holding....I know it's hard to tell! She also ended up looking like she's wearing Sunblock with those White Highlights!
I liked this one a little better. She was kind of based Very loosely off an old Picture I have when I was little. Not sure what's up with all the Blue Trees!
This next one was done after I had just received a Letter from our Sponsor Child through World Vision. There was an adorable little girl in one of the pictures. This one was on a Canvas Board and again was Acrylics.
Here she is a little closer.
I would have never even tried an actual Face if it weren't for Dannielle:) I can't recommend this class enough!
This next one is for "Baby Got Back to Back" by Roben Marie Smith. I have to be honest, this was the class that was the 'scariest' for me because we are actually making a Journal from Scratch and even Binding it!
As you know, I am crazy Dyslexic so trying to figure out how to turn things this way and that is difficult. I also sometimes have trouble with 'Follow through', Ok often!:) But I REALLY want to be able to have one of these for my very own. So I am Pushing On!
Her instructions and videos are 'Spot on'- I should know, I've watched them like a 100 times!
I've gotten so far as the Cover Art:
Here are some Close Ups:)
She wants us to SCAN them in!! Scan them! My Printer and I are Sworn Enemies....He frightens me! She did give Great step-by-Step instructions though, so I have No Excuses....well I have LOTS of Excuses...but none of them are Valid:)
I also have been dragging my feet about pulling out my Sewing Machine. It's just a bit overwhelming and I think I need to have my Mom work some Magic on it:)
I did buy all the Supplies for the rest of it- which were Easy to Find and very Reasonable... So I'll keep you posted on the rest of it!
Are you Currently taking a Class, Online or otherwise? Which one? How do you like it? I would love to hear from you!
Love to All!
