OK. I bit the bullet. I decided to try ACRYLIC PAINT!!!
One would think me Benedict Arnold!!!
I bought paints, brushes, gesso (???), and all of the STUFF.
I held my breath and walked into Robert Burridge's
classroom in Sedona. Five days of instruction by this fabulous, encouraging,
thoroughly competent painter.
Today, the task was to paint our nude model.
We were to paint her, but nothing specific. No details. Just HER.
This is my painting.
I am having FUN!
