Great progress, Paula.  Brilliant smile.

Nothing like being snowed in to get some painting done.  I had a rain day yesterday - love 'em.

Thank you Robin, Natalie, Mea, Val, Nolan, Jill and Danielle.   

The snow stayed East of us, so no snow day. :(

Here is "cheeks, chin & forehead" lesson.  They say "slow but steady wins the race"  I certainly have the "slow" down to a science  :)

Keep at it, Paula.  You are doing well. 

So many of us have been through this course and see real value in staying with it.

great job Paula :clap: :clap: :clap:
don't worry about the speed, getting the techniques right is more important. Once you have mastered the techniques, the speed automatically increases.

PS - You can still smooth out the shadings on the neck some more O0

Halfway through the curley hair, I needed a break  :D so I decided to switch to the hand.


Loved this class.
