I promised in one of my previous posts that I will post an update from the course that I am currently taking with Jane Davenport, Over the Rainbow, which has the Wizard of Oz for the theme. We have done quite a lot and I think that the course is nearing its end. I am pleased that I am managing to follow the lessons as they are published, ok I am one lesson behind, but hey, that’s great.
Jane is my favorite teacher because she is pushing me out of my comfort zone and making me achieve things I would have never tried otherwise. You will see that some of lessons are not what I would call a success (particularly the scene with the yellow brick road, which was a lesson on perspective and was so challenging that I almost gave up), but then decided that I will just do my best and do each lesson, no matter what. Enough said, take a look for yourself:

I LOVE all of these paintings! I love the Wizard of Oz and really love the way you have illustrated it. Your handling of the watercolour is great too. I really like the piece where you’ve allowed the pink and green paints to meld together and the faces with the flowers in the hair. I also like the effect of the salt sprinkles around Dorothy in the final piece you’ve shared here. The visual texture suggests magic or dreams.
Goodness! You are one mean art machine, Larisa! These are all awesome! Watercolors and drawing loves you so much, you make magic with them. Bravo! for getting out of your comfort zone and facing the dream head on.
