This is my nightmare…

Sweet Mother Mary I am NOT an artist. God bless Mai for trying, and for insisting it doesn’t look bad. She’s the sweetest woman in the world. Because it’s a hot mess. My only saving grace is that my friend Jessica went with me. High five for the non-artists! *high-five* Anyway, Jessica didn’t have a picture planned out when she got there, so I rolled up my two options and mixed them up behind my back and had her pick. She got Helena Bonham Carter and I got Russell Brand. Four hours later and I have a strong desire to weep. 8P

It was a fun class, overall. I just wish I could paint. lol! We started out by covering our canvas in yellow, then sketching a rough outline in brown. Then you use a smaller brush to give a more detailed and specific outline in black. Fill in exaggerated shading going from black > black/brown > brown > brown/yellow > yellow > yellow/white > white. After that you’re supposed to mix paint with a glaze and brush over the shading…and that’s where things kind of fell apart. We had fallen behind so weren’t listening too carefully when she explained how the glazing worked and ended up using too much paint. Totally wiped out all my shading. >.<

We did our best, but we did not finish. Jessica vowed to finish hers, and I guess I’ll make Mr. T help me finish mine at some point. For now I’m leaving him in my car to hide my shame. I think the next time I try to paint something I’ll go for something a bit easier…
