the class - In this new work shop I will be showing you how to draw a small
character using first Carbon papel on watercolor paper. The technique allows strong
outline foundation. The purpose of using carbon papel, gives character sharp
contrast, a contour drawing field to it. Focus on the outlined of the character.

It is very
exciting and fun to simply doodle your characters in a freestyle grooving way.
2 – I want you to do three pieces on watercolor paper sizes 5 x 7 not 5.5 x 7.5
dismiss what was said on video 2 about size. You will first paint your backdrop
designing your three pieces in Oil pastel, crayons and watercolor. About the Technique
– it brings out lovely effects and patterns. The oil pastels and crayons - resist
the watercolor paint filling in the backdrop beautifully. Once you are done
draw in your characters.
3 – More about contour drawing. You will use three 5 x 7 pieces looking at an
object, a cat, a flower and child. You will do a contour outline without
looking. Practice on bigger paper for a week. This will make your pieces
interesting and strong in thick dark lines and light lines. When you look at an
object you will see thick and thin lines and what that means it allows you to
focus where the light and dark is coming from, sharp thick lines means shadow
and thin lines means light.
You will not lift up your pencil while you are
drawing. Continue to draw your subject without looking at your paper. It will
be difficult but the purpose to this is to allow your eyes to move along the
paper. Practice and you will see the effectiveness and results to this
4 – On video 4 – We will be using three watercolor paper 5 x 7 applying texture
pastel, oil pastel, crayons, acrylic and watercolor. The technique is to use
these mediums to amplify your pieces composition and arrangement of beautiful colors

Everything I create is based on the innocence and beauty of children, friendship and the bonding between them and the little gestures that makes them special.
That little girl inside me inspires me to stay true to what is really important even when the adult part of myself says leave her in the dark, you don't need her, you are all grown up. But I stick by her every minute she keep my fire burning. She is the one who keeps me strong and on my toes even when I feel like giving up sometimes. I rise above it and listen to her.
An important note - The photo below this message - When we grow up sometimes the world makes us rigid, makes us feel that type of friendship doesn't exist and it does. But fear gets in the way, our past experiences gets in the way also. A lot of children grow up in dysfunctional families where kids get confused angry sad unloved. Emotionally their feelings get all messed up and they have to pay the price from parents who don't take the time to take care of themselves emotionally. Some get medicated because some parents don't know what to do with them. And some kids end up doing horrible things. It's sad really! And yes we live in a world where we need to protect our selves. But there is always room always for kindness, for beauty. love and unity keeps us alive and well. Speak loud and don't worry what other's might think of you because at the end it doesn't matter, you matter
