I recently fell in love with some paintings by Megan K. Suarez and I was so inspired to try something similar. I guess I did not try to copy one of her paintings in every detail, because I would never even be close to succeeding, but I did copy some parts of her paintings and I could not show you the result without crediting her! She has a bunch of very inspiring videos on YouTube too - go check them out! And yes, I got Megan's permisson to post these images. Thank you Megan!
I hope to find my own style one day, but while learning I love trying different approaches and I think the internet is amazing with all the opportunities to learn new things and to find inspiration. I've become an online class junkie... =) and I'm so happy that there are people out there who have given me the courage to try things I never thought I could do.
Here's my painting and some photos I took along the way.
