More class work

Ok, I know this doesn't look like much, but it took me 5 HOURS, yes that's FIVE, to do. I started with a simple flower that one of the students put up. Then I put it on a coloured background and erased a lot of the photos actual background. Then I went hunting for some interesting Photoshop brushes, downloaded a bunch, didn't have a clue what they would look like, so it took forever to choose one and then decide how to use it. Then I painted with coloured lines on the flower and wrote the word with a mouse (hard to write well with such a clumsy tool). This isn't totally mine as I got the idea and a tiny bit of a headstart by a wonderful designer Caryl Wyatt. She has an amazing story that you can read if you click her name.

Enjoy!

I just spent some time catching up on your blog and now feel like a sloth. Your energy and curiosity are boundless!
I loved the little winter plein air.
That's fortitude.
