ART, HEART & HEALING part 1

Hi, I am taking part in the Art, Heart & Healing Course run by the lovely Tam.  Our 1st week consisted of a healing excercise making up a journal page.  Part of that was to do a self-portrait on one side.  I used to love sketching at school but that was a little while ago (well...ok....a long time ago haha).  Tam suggested using acrylics & watercolour crayons to colour the face but as I didn't have the crayons I just used watercolour but am pretty pleased with the result.  Though...


...its interesting that it didn't occur to me to add the lines & wrinkles or the chins hahaha!!!  Perhaps this is the inner me after all!!!!  Thank you for taking a look at this...its not too late to join in and its free!  HEALING HUGS XXX

I signed up for that class and got as far as 10 minutes into the first video and it crashed. I may have to reinstall Adobe, but I'm hoping she'll leave the lesson up for awhile. I can't draw, not anything, so I am sure this will be a hoot class for me.

I love your pages, both of them. They are awesome. And you draw SO well. I'm totally in awe and very intimidated, now!

You certainly are loved for being you :-)
If you enjoyed painting this please keep at it because this is brilliant Karen!
None of us have wrinkles on the inside so it must be the inner you!
