Updates, Colored Pencil Tip & Resource of the Week

Hi Everyone,
So sorry I haven't updated in a while. I have been so busy with school, I just haven't had much time to do anything else. I made it a point to set homework aside to post something today. So much to tell. I love the computer classes I am taking. I can't wait to take Adobe Photo Shop, Flash, Dreamweaver and other classes. I have always loved working on the computer, but really enjoy creating sites and creating graphics for sites. So I really think God has open this door for me, for a reason. He does have a plan.

I got to go to a woman's retreat on the weekend of October 5th. If you know me personally, you would know that this was a huge step for me. I am a very shy person and I have a hard time talking to people. So I had to force myself to talk to people at the retreat and I was totally out of my comfort zone. It was very difficult for me. Once I get to know people or have I have some sort of connection, like art or computers, I have know problem talking to them, but if I have no sense of connection, I just have a hard time talking to people. I didn't really connect with the ladies from our church, as much as I did with the ladies from the Lafayette church. The ladies from the Lafayette church were so nice and friendly. It was a blessing getting to know them and sharing with them.

I am putting school work aside on Friday, October the 26th and maybe possibly the 27th to throw out some ACEO and other sketches. So if you are interested in checking the sketchfest out and purchasing any of my sketches check it out here

Color Pencil Tip of the Week

I just had to share this you tube video of artist drawing a parrot in color pencil.

If you search for color pencil tutorials at youtube, you will find some amazing helpful informative tutorials. To help you grow as an artist, I think it is important to see how other artists work with the medium you like to work in. You might discover helpful tips, ideas and techniques you never knew about.
