Dipping Back In

I've had a dry spell, to say the least, in terms of motivation to do art lately. But it's a gorgeous day here, my yard is in the early stages of exploding with flowers, and I finally felt like it was time to sit down at my art desk.  I've been wanting to try something Francoise de Felice ish from the week Kate Thompson did on her in Studying Under The Masters, I had done a rough sketch of faces but that's as far as I'd gotten.  It went off the de Felice rails pretty quickly, and I just went my own way with it.  I'm just glad I dipped my toes in again, especially considering that the online class from Gillian Lee Smith I've been waiting for is starting soon.

This one I did recently after receiving some pan watercolors I'd ordered (Grumbacher).   Danielle Donaldson recommended them in her Studying Under the Masters class so I was just playing around with them on a girl inspired by ones she paints.
