Oh! Very glare-y! Today Karin had us to mug shots. I resisted. I never liked the mug shots because I thought it was catching someone at the lowest point in their life. But you know, in a workshop you do what the instructor asks, so I did it. And you know what? I LOVED it! This model never moved! And if I was a little off one thing or another - no one is going to say "Hey, that's ME and I have bigger eyes than that!"
This workshop is totally rocking. The group is bonding and we laugh so hard our sides hurt. AND there is serious learning going on. I bet each of us has a story about an AHA moment. Mine was that Karin can take a lovely photo and make it spectacular painting because she uses colors she loves. And she has enough experience and intuition to know what colors will work with each other. And enough guts to try them out - and is not devastated if they don't work. She just goes back and tries something else. Sounds simple, doesn't it? Well it wasn't a 'given' for me... until now...
