Do More of What Makes You Sparkle

“Do more of what makes you SPARKLE”

I really liked this quote as it is a great reminder to do the things that make you happy and bring you enjoyment.

I have been continuing on my watercolor journey while attempting to draw more body shapes.  Although this is still on the ballet theme doing legs is new for me.  This watercolor was done on 6″ x 12″ 140 lb cold press watercolor paper.

She believed she could, so she did….

This past week I have been drawn to portraits of ballerinas for some reason, perhaps my inspiration began from seeing photos of my dear friend in full ballerina costume for a recent recital. Where ever the inspiration has come from I am grateful for it because it has helped me discover that I can draw and paint the full figure which I was not very confident about before. I am discovering that if I believe I can draw something and I practice I eventually can.

I also appreciate the techniques I have learned from attending artist demos at Opus Framing and Art Supplies in Langley  http://www.opusartsupplies.com –  it has really helped me improve my art.

This painting was done in my art journal for practice but I really like how it turned out so I thought I would share it.
