Zach loves superhero's, and cartooning is definitely one of his specialties. So this project captured his attention. I just added a new element to what he's use to doing... watercolour and ink. After drawing out Batman, Zach outlined it in ink, and then painted in the black parts with liquid ink. Lastly he painted the rest with watercolours. I love how 'painterly' it turned out.
The last few lessons with Amy were spent working on this beautiful self-portrait. If you know Amy, you can easily see the resemblance. She has such a natural instinct for drawing accurate shapes, lines etc. I'm excited to see what she will create in the next year ahead.
I live in Southern Ontario on a farm with my husband, Dennis, and our two daughters. Painting out of my studio on our farm allows me to stay close to my family and to be surrounded by the natural landscape that continues to influence my work.
