Sketchbook Sunday: Faces

I’m working on some ideas for creating my next art class.  I did this face using a Sharpie marker and colored pencils. It’s not perfect, which is OK because I’m trying to get over striving for perfection. Instead I’m focusing on the process and learning. What are you working on today? Leave a comment and […]

Sketchbook Sunday: Gel pen flowers

My wonderful art buddy gave me a gaint pack of gel pens as a birthday gift. Feels just as exciting as receiving diamonds. I love art supplies!
