Paint this image with 4 colors!


This image is from Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park - one of my favorite places.

On the blackbird we are going to extend the table top so it extends off the page focusing on the bird. We are also going to give the bird a pedicure, making the feet prettier.

After each class, I load an image of what I painted into Dropbox for your reference, so you can clearly see what I've completed.
When you're done painting your lesson, take a picture and send it to me so I can load in into Dropbox, and at the next zoom class we can work together with a critique on how to progress.
