As I said, after the world watercolor month, I have big plans on doing my course work. I am trying to keep up with the Life Book. I have to say that I am doing fine. I skipped one lesson which I definitely did not like, and I started and did not finish three more, but that’s ok. This week I did two lessons that I really liked and that were quick and easy. Perfect! Here they are:
One new course that I started is the Vitamin Sea with Jane Davenport. I did not plan on taking any more classes, but as this one was all about the watercolors, figure drawing and sea creatures (including seahorses :)))) I decided that it is what I really need at this moment. Up until now we made our journals out of various sorts of watercolor paper and made the ‘tide lines’. This is how it looks:
Did you spot the seahorse? 🙂 It is going to be exciting, I am sure.
My Ever After course is not going so well. I felt very intimidated by a third lesson which required really elaborate face and hand painting in acrylic and I could not start it at all… The fourth lesson was by Jane Davenport, consisting of three parts. I finished part one:
I thought I already posted this here, but I am not sure any longer. Anyway, you will forgive me if I did. I started the second part of the lesson this week and will hopefully finish it tomorrow. It is going quite slowly in this course because the lessons are quite difficult and videos are very long. They are downloadable however, so I should take it easy.
So, that’s about it for today. I plan barbecue for dinner and can hardly wait 🙂 Wish you a good day!

I LOVE the two Life Book lesson responses. I confess I skipped all the flower lessons. Partly this was because I know flowers just are not my thing so saving time by skipping those seemed obvious. With this week’s one, however, it is because I don’t have masking fluid (mine has gone off and I have not yet replaced it) so I either have to improvise or skip. If I find time before the next lesson then I might tackle it. I love your Sleeping Beauty piece. Maybe it does not meet your expectations but I love the drama of it. I absolutely adore your wavy edged journal. I liked the look of that Vitamin Sea course so I look forward to seeing what you do with it.
I had a fight with my masking fluid which got partly dry and separated. After I squeezed out half the bottle over my table and hands I realized it just needed good shaking… oh the smell of it… As for Vitamin Sea, I avoided Jane’s courses because they are so expensive. I took chances with thus one because of watercolor and figure drawing. I am still not sure how worth it will prove. What happened until now proved to be different and more creative than other courses I am taking.
