'take down the bricks...build up the house!' by myra anderson...





As you know, I occasionally ponder the question 'how can I get my artwork up to the next level?'  I usually try to draw as carefully as I know how...like the ballerina in pink.  
Sometimes Office Depot has notebooks for ten cents apiece.  This is an especially great time to take a super large marker and explore your  subject matter with no regard for accuracy.   
If you make a drawing you like - you can copy it - or you can make copies of it in order to practice various methods of adding color.  And what about this paint! lol!  Didn't I just talk up a storm about  buying materials?  I'm practicing 'big marker drawing and painting' on all types of paper and these work just fine!
I saw this photo on-line of an adult social group that got together to paint a degas.
Why wait until you have the skill level to create a  work of art.  Why wait until you can paint a Degas in order to paint a Degas?  Just do it!   Create something the best way you can just because you think it's beautiful!

I love the free spirited feeling of your artwork. I agree with your statement to "Just do it!" Happy PPF!

Wow, the painting beautiful! Nice sketches.

I'm really bad at sketching figures.
