True to my goals, I spent yesterday and this morning doing a painting following the Gritty Jane portrait course.
There’s a couple of things I want to say about this course. First, it’s really good fun. I enjoyed every minute of it. I was amazed to get as far as I did, and I was even more amazed with the result. This is the first painting that I want to hang on the wall – and as I’m a very self-critical person, that’s a huge benchmark.
Jane makes the course easy to follow and, most striking of all, I soon found I was far less wary of the paint than I have previously been.
