Out in the open

LOL…to say I’m green at using Painter is a huge understatement, but I have been working on another class at LVS to hopefully continue to grow.  The course is PhotoPainting and Portraiture and I’m having lots of fun with it, and learning gobs.  Whether painting in this medium or real-life mediums, my biggest challenge has been trying to paint like it was a photograph…and I’m trying ever so hard to let loose.  I do believe my instructor, Maureen will do all she can to break me out of that mold…as have my other instructors.  Decided I’d share what I completed not too long ago…before and after shots.  I certainly am hoping I remember how to enter the pics.

This lesson was teaching a watercolor technique and you can tell I need to practice lots more, but it surely was fun enough to do just that;O)
