Hello everyone! I am taking a new course which I can already highly recommend: Tamara Laporte’s Ever After series. Tamara and about a dozen guest teachers take you on a fairy tale art journey, and if you also subscribe to Module 2, along the way you are guided towards discovering your personal style & what makes you tick as an artist. Before I even started the first lesson, I learned quite a bit about what I am seeking in my art.
Tamara leads the first lesson based on The Little Mermaid. This version is more of an empowered girl that doesn’t give up everything she is, and has a strong relationship with her female companions, including her sisters and the sea witch (Ursula.)
This was a classic “Tam-style” painting, which as you can see in my gallery, I enjoy emulating. I like the combination of media – water soluble crayons, colored pencils, collage. The point of the style development course is to follow the artist’s lesson closely, so you can determine what you like/don’t like. So, I can not take any credit for the composition and design of this piece! However, I am already seeing the subtleties of “me” in the lessons. 🙂
If you would like to learn more about how this was created, I encourage you to sign up for the course!
