Hello creative friends,
I'm excited to share a very quick video with you - a little sneak peek behind the scenes - where I create this historically inspired drawing using both my dominant and non-dominant hand.
As many of you know, I am studying Picasso's blue period and this is the focus of my new class, Into the Blue.
Picasso found beauty in the most humble places, often in the working women and men he saw around him. So, I was inspired to explore historical public domain photographs and discovered photographer, Frank Meadow Sutcliffe. His images, depicting a village of fishermen and women living in Whitbey, England in 1880's, completely captured my heart so I incorporated them into my new class.
These photographs give me a feeling of serenity and I hope this piece does the same for you.
Hope you enjoy...
