It's always fun to learn something new
and this is definitely new for me.
I'm taking an online class on painting pet portraits because I need to improve on drawing and painting animals. I thought this would be a good way to go. I can stop the class at any time, back up and start over or just watch a portion of the class at any time.
Sounds good, doesn't it.
Well, it's pretty much working out just like that,
but as students we always seem to forget the teacher has been at this a while,
so mine don't look as good as hers, but I'm satisfied with them.
Here's my motivation.
Hopefully my family will recognize this as our dearly departed dog Bailey.
He died a year ago and he is missed.
Through the class I have learned how to draw him and other dogs with relative accuracy.
This was sort of a quick study but I am happy with it.
The next part of the class was painting the eye of a cat and a dog so these two paintings just have a portion of a face and are painted on scrap matt board.
Anyway, here is the practice of a cat eye
And here is the dog eye practice.
Now, it's on to a real dog and cat and then hopefully on to my dog and cats.
Yes, I have multiple cats.
I'm like that crazy ol lady.
