Greatest Teacher Part 2

Last week I told you who was one of my greatest teachers to date that has helped me grow as an artist? I have one more that I have to mention…Jen Carver of jen carver photography

It is from Jen that I learned how to make natural outdoor light artificially. This is an extremely important feature in my portraits, because I create imaginary scenes. I love the feel soft pastel lighting gives to my portraits. If I had not learned this skill from Jen, my whimsical scenes would definitely be missing some whimsy. I also discovered Mustard Pie Clothing…so cute! But the most important think Jen taught me was to never give up. I should reach for the stars and chase that dream, because I am worth it! I am so thankful to have found Jen!

My Favorite Artist

Who is my favorite artist? Definitely Cindy Grundsten of Cindys Art

Once I started researching how to effectively create a composite portrait, I came across Cindy on DeviantArt. I was immediately impressed by the breathtakingly beautiful imaginary world she created in each image involving children and animals. It was then I decided I was absolutely certain that I was going to create my own imaginary whimsical world for children with animals.

Who is your favorite artist?
