Embrace and Transform

Hello my bloggy friends,

This week, I travelled back in time to week 24 of Life Book 2016 to catch up on a lesson with the fabulous Tamara Laporte, creator of Life Book and Teacher Extraordinaire!

The lesson was all about working with our Inner Critic and Tam showed us the wonderful "paint-over-collage" technique which she does so well. This time, she encouraged us to incorporate an animal into our painting ...


It just had to be a cat for me, and somehow this one ended up sitting on his companion's shoulder. There are definitely shades of my little friend Archie there - he used to look at me just like that ....

Thanks for visiting my blog today, see you again soon :o)

Wow, Annie! This is beyond belief! I'm studying your shading technique so I can learn from it. So very, very well done! Love the kitty too - I wanted to do Oreo but he's all black and would be difficult to shade. This lesson is next on my list as I put it off when it first came out. If I can do half as good as yours I'll be happy!
