I have a plan I am carrying out.
The painting above is one from Carla Sonheim's website. She is an artist and a teacher who gives online art classes (and does them in person too). I am taking a Watercolor transfer class June 3 - 7. I am excited about it. It is going to help me with my step in my illustrating journey -- making up a real portfolio.
Step by step. That is how we get anywhere.
Don't give up.
