as soon as I saw she had a class, I had to jump on the early bird price. I watched the series of videos for the first lesson and was immediately inspired to find a photo I loved out of my meager stash of old family photos.
I found this one of my dad, sister, grandmother and I at ocean city, MD, and knew I wanted to crop the iconic image of grandma in her scarf to protect her hairdo.
when cropping, it became a blurry mess with no real detail for me to follow but I wanted to depict this sweet moment between grandmother and grandchild.
I created my background and sketched my subjects as well as I could with the information I was given
this was a loose single-line sketch, barely looking at the page
so, there has been artistic movement, and for that I am extremely grateful! I cant wait to get back to the painting of my grandmother, hopefully I can get the paint to work it's magic so I feel it represents her a bit better.
