(I used supplies I already had in my studio... there were a few substitutions.)
This week's tutorial try-out was:
Lynne Hoppe's How to Paint Faces tutorial
As I mentioned at the end of my last post, I am a big fan of Lynne Hoppe. I love her style... The softness, loose lines, and limited palette intrigue me. I was very excited to (finally) give her "how-to" a try...
As much as I loooove Lynne's work, I didn't want to create a copy. I was interested in seeing how her technique and palette might translate into my own work. I was also hoping that doing this technique might help me loosen up a little... I have a tendency to get caught up in details (and frequently over-work pieces), so I thought Lynne's soft style might give me some insights into how I can improve as an artist.
I think I did learn quite a bit by doing this tutorial,
and I will definitely be tucking away some of my new-found understanding for use in later projects.
Did you try this tutorial?

Now, for the announcement:
Summer is fast approaching, and so are some challenges that I love to participate in! Since I'm planning on playing along with Daisy Yellow's Index Card A Day (from June 1st to July 31st), Twinkle Twinkle's Summer Of Color, and Rhi-Creations Doodle-A-Day, May 28th will be my last Tutorial Try-Out (for now...).
