A tribute to Georgia O' Keefe

Georgia O' Keeffe was an American artist with a very distinct style of painting, mainly remembered for her flowers (poppies especially) which were always large as though magnified and seen up close.

The Busy Bees were shown some of her flower paintings and we worked on drawing and painting on the same lines. They thought BIG and drew large flowers, like O'Keefe's famous paintings and then they used watercolors :)
A fitting tribute to a fantastic painter :)

2 minute poses

Hmmmm from live models.....

to my new Studio C Stunt Persons :) Welcome Hanna and George !

Check back soon on the sketches as they come up :)

Pirates and Princesses at High Sea :)

Another take on the black paper and white markers :)
A new batch of little children went to work with their boats with pirates, princesses and sea-life :) As you can see even the little use of color, by way of oil pastels, gives such a bright touch to these beautiful pictures
The black paper did not come out too well in pictures, believe me- the actual art is much more prettier!!
