Looking for summer...
Hello everyone! I hope you all are well. Today, I am sending my thoughts and well wishes to those affected by the devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma.
Today is a big work day...inking a fun children's piece of my favorite city, San Francisco. Once approved, I will share it with all of you. I also have been trying to paint more people. Kids, adults, boys, girls. Sketching, sketching, faces, bodies, positions. I must say, this is hard! I am still so far from getting to a place where I am happy with how to paint people. Do you have trouble with this too? Any tips, suggestions?
As for this little red-haired girl, she showed up on my watercolor block very faintly. She feels hopeful for a calm and pleasant summer ahead. It seems that we have turmoil and trouble, weather tragedies, and domestic and international tragedies and perhaps it's cause I'm aging, but it seems to be happening more rapidly these days. Let us all hope for a calm and peaceful summer and rest of 2013 ahead. Thank you so much for visiting dear friends! ~ Shirley
