I might need to leave many pages just sketched on to save the binding.
The Renaissance is my favorite art period. I loved the realism in Neoclassical and the fabulous style of the Rococo period. I have never taken a class in portrait painting or oil painting. For my folk art, I rarely use a real image of a person, so this practice was helpful. I imagine I could make her much prettier if I spend more than 2 hours on her. My goal is two max hours inside each journal a week. I can spend up to 4 on other paintings that I do. So far for me that is awesome!!! I am learning patience and acceptance during each piece I make and that makes me happy.
I am not sure if I will offer this in print or not....we will see.
