Had a great time explaining the basics of colored pencil to my new students. They were all great and very attentive. I only forgot to pack one thing when I was getting ready to leave the house...my pencil sharpener! Oh boy! At least everyone else had theirs. I also got a couple more calls for the Learn to Draw class so I'll have 2 more students there next Tuesday. I'm wondering why I didn't try this earlier? I love to watch people learn to draw! I'm even considering teaching a short Photoshop class teaching artist the basics after they do the scan, what now? I imagine lots of them would like to learn that.

Well I started my "Learn to Draw" class for adults yesterday and it went great. The students were concentrating on what I was teaching them and the exercises and sketches they did were really well done. They even asked if there was homework! So I sent them home with something to do and told them they should definitely consider have a sketchbook and drawing in it every day. Hope they take me up on that suggestion! Colored Pencil class starts tomorrow! Yipee!

I love to find old antique photos and play with them in Photoshop until I come up with a great new look, then offer them for sale in my Etsy Shop as birthday cards. This one will be a bit hit with any dog lover!
