Diane Culhane's Table Top Drawing and Painting Online Art Class hosted by Carla Sonheim

Hello Everybody! 

I am SO excited.  This drawing is the result of Wednesday's lesson in Diane Culhane's Table Top Drawing & Painting Online Art Class which is hosted by Carla Sonheim.  The class started Monday, November 11, and runs for two weeks "live" with teacher feedback from both Diane as well as Carla, too.  There are a lot of wonderful friendly people taking this class right now.  (And you can also take this class after the two weeks as a self study class, so if you don't have time right now, you can take it when ever your schedule permits.)

It is a lot of fun drawing on a black background, the colors are amazing on top of the black.  Another reason I am SO excited, is that Carla featured a handful of drawings from our class at her blog today.  And ...  she included my drawing, too!  This is such a boost of confidence for me as I have been really trying to learn so many different ways of creating art by drawing and painting. Wait until you see all the beautiful, and I mean beautiful drawings that are coming out of this class!  It is unbelievable!!!

This technique is SO fun and enjoyable.  I want to keep practicing it so that I can create a drawing similar to some of the others that I have seen where they just let their imagination run free and create!  I tend to be a little less bold when starting out. 

You will have to let me know what you think of all those beautiful drawings at Carla's blog!  They sure are amazing!!

Have a Fun Day!

Happy Painting!  Cheers!  and   Break a Bristle.
