Challenge


We are having great fun in my on line workshop. My friend Mystele sort of challenged me to paint dark skin. Well she didn't challenge me but ask if I would/could using the Folk Art paints like we are using in the first week of class.
You may have noticed that I haven't painted anything in way too long and that would be because of a huge project that I am happy to say got mailed today. Last night I could go no longer not having a brush in my hand. I HAD TO PAINT! And I could not get the challenge out of my mind.
So here is Penny painted with mostly Folk Art paints and following my own instructions in the class. Now that the huge project is finished, I think I will video a quick class supplemental for dark skin and surprise them with it.
There is room for more if you are interested and you don't have to get dressed or even be on time.
I plan to have a random week,
Sharon
