COURAGEOUS DREAMER. 11×14″ on paper. See the originals available in my shop here.
I hope you enjoy this video… it’s a snip-it from one of the painting projects I share in Wild And Free Painting – A Mini Course (which is now available as a self-paced, instant access online class).
To create this piece, I had so much fun going back to some of my favorite drawing supplies and techniques. I scribbled with chalk pastels, charcoal and pencil to create a soft look like clouds.
Lions are a symbol of bravery, but I love to give them a sense of calm and inner strength too.
I know that when I have a dream in mind I can run full force, forgetting the beauty around me. So I titled this painting as a reminder to follow dreams with a soft heart, knowing a COURAGEOUS DREAMER remembers the stillness of the flowers.
In Wild & Free Painting, I share many playful techniques and characters to help you feel more free in your artwork and find your own style.
That means we’re drawing and painting whimsical animals, feather-haired girls, imaginary creatures, watercolor portraits, lusciously layered backgrounds and more! I also share how to create a face in under 10 minutes with just a few supplies, so even if you don’t have a lot of space or time, you can still get creative and play.
This is the perfect class for beginners or for those looking to loosen up and feel more relaxed in your art.
3 Month Payment Plans are also available (for all of my classes).
To me, Wild And Free Painting is all about learning to let go, painting with your fingertips and playing with lots of color and luscious layers.
I’ve fallen in love with mixed media painting and out of all of the painting techniques I’ve ever tried, the one thing I always return to is remembering to have fun whenever I create. This brings joy and happiness into the process, which inevitably gets infused into your artwork and always makes anyone who sees it smile.
