Art in stages part 1: toddler in crib


I really want to learn to paint people well but I don’t want to take classes; though I’m sure I would benefit from it, because I just don’t want to hassel trucking supplies,  driving to and from then spending a couple hours.  It represents a chunk of time I feel guilty taking when my help is needed elsewhere.  So I found lovely paintings in a calender and have begun to try my


hand at copying the style.  This first picture shows my start on the left and the calendar painting on the right.  Isn’t it just too precious?!

    • I will bring it for our first paint shop at your house Friday. Thanks so much for your feedback. I both dread and anticipate the journey. I know I agonize over each choice and I am my worst critic. It will be great to learn from you and Rhet!

  1. That is really one beautiful painting, do keep it up!

    Thank you so much for sharing your painting joy with us!

    Have a wonderful day ahead, always~ Cheers!! 😀

    And I say pretty good, I mean it. Most people think the difficult part is drawing. No. The most difficult part is light and shadows. And you captured that pretty well! Thumbs up!
