I was going through old photos this weekend, looking for photos of a dear cousin who passed away recently. I want to send them to her children. Meanwhile, I found this one and cleaned it up a bit with Photoshop. This is what I looked like as a toddler, late 1940's. I think I will use this as a practice piece for drawing. I have done some drawings of adults, but none of children yet.
I start my new painting class this week and I am looking forward to it. I tried mixing colors over the weekend (acrylics) and was frustrated. I am going to look for a color mixing book in the library this week. This should help too.
