Drawing Shaylee

I wanted to take you on a journey with me as I begin my new painting of my beautiful daughter Shaylee. I prepped my textured surface with some gessoed leaves and then about 5 layers of watercolor medium. First we'll begin with getting the subject matter onto the surface.

Watch how easy it can be to get your subject matter onto your painting surface using tracing paper. I'll use this method sometimes when I don't want to take the extra time to draw it free hand.

As with developing any new skill, you can get faster and more accurate in your freehand drawing with consistency and repetition.

Come follow along with me, you may even be inspired to begin your own painting! And if you do, please share with me what you are working on. I would love to see!

Promise me you will be kind to yourself as you start your art journey. Enjoy!
