I've been busy for the last couple of weeks and overwhelmed, (and it's not an excuse.. really.. my car was totaled, I work full time, we had parent-teacher conferences, church obligations, yada yada yada.) Anyways, so I had been meaning to check out Amy's free workshops and this week Manon was doing a workshop with Amy. I really love Manon's style, so I watched the video of her workshop. I really enjoyed learning how she layers markers to create the shades on her little girl drawings. And then she used gesso to blend the markers. I haven't ever used gesso in that way, so that was really cool. I'm very pleased with how my little girl turned out, but also then I have mixed feelings, because this is really a Manon girl and really her style. I don't really ever draw people that much, maybe once in awhile. I think there are some elements of the drawing style that I could transfer to things like animals and creatures. Anyways, I think the girl turned out pretty cute.
