A Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented, Fabulous Day. . .



"We ask ourselves, 'who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' 
Actually, who are you not to be?"
-- Marianne Williamson


It was a Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented, Fabulous day Saturday as I taught my latest class at Venus Studios in Palm Desert, CA. The colors were bright & poppy, the students were sweet & lovely and the art was altogether joyous. 

So, for todays artistic offering, I thought it would be fun to share some of the class works in process. Wanna see? Okay good! Here we go:

Mimosa's and watercolor crayons? Um, but of course!

Step 1: Creating collaged backgrounds




Step 2: Adding color, depth and details




Step 3: Learning to sketch a whimsical portrait



And Lastly: Putting it all together.

See? It really was a Brilliant, Gorgeous, Talented & Fabulous day! Anddddd I personally loved every minute of it.



Oh! And speaking of loving every minute of it: believe it or not, The Summer of Color 5 begins in just six short weeks from today! Um yeah. That's true. Just six tiny Mondays from today. Pop over to the SOC5 Facebook page for more. 

Wheeeeeeee. . . .

To Love, Art & Being Fabulous,
Kristin xo
