Finally decided to be brave and sign up for my first art class!

In the meantime, I have been copying some little critters someone else painted because I wanted to try a new style and because I thought my little students would enjoy them: https://m.facebook.com/jennifer.henderson.1804109/albums/10155398710040216/?ref=bookmarks

Sketched this mushroom freehand tonight: https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10155421526685216&id=621050215&set=a.10155421525665216&source=48&ref=bookmarks

Had an epiphany about one of my art influences: https://m.facebook.com/jennifer.henderson.1804109/albums/10155415712555216/?ref=bookmarks

7. Thanks! Yes, all my work but the critters were copies

of another artist's work so I could try out a new style.

3. Nice economy of stroke with the shroom.

Not overly fussy, like it.

8. Thank you! It was just a color test sketch. I do

tend to be more detail oriented, but am trying to loosen up about that and be freer.

5. Keep a pencil in that hand and keep drawing if its only doodles, lines, circles. Educate ...

your wrist and hand as much as possible.

10. Will do! Overhand grip and drawing from the shoulder

are tricky for me. And circles and ellipses ate kicking my behind! LOL
