Sketchbook Delight Online Class with Alisa Burke
Not only am I currently taking A Journal and A Purse Online Class with Carla Sonheim, I am also learning how to draw.
I have been playing around a little bit with doodles, and got to thinking "maybe I should take an online class to learn about drawing."
One of my favorite Artists' blogs to follow is Alisa Burke's blog. I really love her style of drawing, painting, sketching. She is an amazing artist. Just recently she offered her Sketchbook Delight Online Class.
Now please keep in mind I am a "Newbie" to all things related to drawing. But, I do love doodling and attempting to draw.
For part of our homework, we were to test our supplies and experiment with shapes and/or patterns in search of our Muse.
This is the result of my searching and experimenting:
I literally was searching all over the house trying to find a shape to inspire me. I simply could not come up with anything. So, finally while talking to McKenna, I said "well, I guess I better try to find a shape...I'm coming up with nothing!"... then I stopped noticed her telephone dial....and hooray...I found my shape.
Here is another pic of it. I used Sharpies, and Colored Pencils.
I wanted to try one more drawing attempt, and noticed a photograph of Kiwi in a book. At this time, I was thinking that I needed to "get to the center" of finding my very own Muse....here is the result:
Here is another view: (I'm still trying to figure out why the image is flipped...hmm...) I used watercolors (which I thoroughly LOVE), and a few colored pencils.
I am having SO much taking these online classes. I definitely plan to take more!!
If you are like me and have been contemplating on whether or not to learn something new - my advice would be: JUMP IN AND ENJOY!!!! Because it is so much fun and extremely rewarding.
