Painting Faces - My Diary of Faces Class with Sharon Tomlinson

2012 was the year for me to really push myself in my desire to paint faces - to REALLY be able to look at a photo or portrait painting and capture something as realistic as I can - moving away from the whimsy. I signed up for Sharon Tomlinson's Diary of Faces class - and I've been so happy with the material and my progress. This is a very intense class - and not only have I pushed myself with my renditions of portraits - but I've learned so much about other artists here and abroad. There are a wealth of artists to learn from ... and long after this class is finished, I will continue studying these artists works.

You have such a gift. These paintings are beautiful. I can't help but think of your style as Chagall meets Renoir! Thanks for the follow. Following you right back!
