I do have the menu planned though. Here's what I'm planning:
- Cornish Hens
- Collard Greens
- Salad with avocado
- Sweet Potato Casserole for dessert
- and maybe a simple wild rice pilaf
So when Yuko Miki gave me my art journal challenge, I was thrilled. I've been taking a sketching class with Andrea Gomoll (her challenge was on day 9) and while I'm still new to sketching, I thought this was a chance to see what I've learned so far.
TODAY'S CHALLENGE -- from Yuko Miki
Sounds simple enough, huh? Well, it took me a lot longer than I thought. First, it took me forever to narrow down my favorites -- I have so many. I knew immediately that I was going to sketch and use watercolor, so that was easy. Then, the drawing. WHEW -- that took me some time too and lots and lots and lots of erasing.
But the process was amazing. I realized that I've learned a lot from Andrea's class even in this short amount of time I've been in it. That felt good to reinforce my learning with a bit of practice. Let's face it, we can't get better at anything if we don't practice.
Here's my page:
