Book Worm Girl

Join this popular self study class first released in 2014. It’s one of my most popular classes enjoyed by 1000nds of wonderful creative people!

Come learn how to make this adorable ‘Book Worm Girl’ and get in touch with your Inner Book Worm! :) She is sassy AND bookish and she has so much spunk this girl! :) I totally absolooooodely LOVE her and her bookish ways!

What you’ll learn:

  • I show you step by step how I made this painting, no skipping of any parts (approx 1 hr 45 mins of video)
  • Supported by an in depth 20 page PDF
  • You’ll learn a new type of face angle: her face is tilted down, she is reading a book, this is a different type of face than the usual front-facing portrait, so you’re learning a differently angled face, that is angling downward, interesting!
  • The book pile is done with ‘perspective’. I go over how to achieve depth on the pile of books.
  • We shade the face with beautiful little details to make her face radiant and ‘glowy’.
  • We go over how to make a beautifully messy mixed media background with lots of different layering techniques.
  • There is no time limit on class access
  • All Videos are downloadable and for you to keep forever!

This class is suitable for beginners and super affordable!  I hope you’ll sign up and create this lovely painting on a relaxed afternoon.
