Take Me Away

New Year, new projects. Art is taking some new turns. I've taken a portraits class by Gillian Cox and right now I'm taking an illustration class taught by Lilla Rogers. We are creating characters for children's books in Lilla's class, but I'm really more interested in the illustration process. This is just a quick sketch I played with. Nothing special, but a lot of fun. After one week of class, I'm really enjoying it, especially the loose style of working.

This is one of the projects from the portrait class taken last month. It was wonderful to be working in oils again:

These classes are what I needed to get some focus on new subjects. I'm looking forward to seeing where they take me.
