All Things Soft & Gentle with Danielle Donaldson (day 2)

All Things Soft & Gentle with Danielle Donaldson (day 2)

It was another amazing day learning from Danielle Donaldson

Today we learned a bit about perspective drawing and watercolor illustration.

The subject matter was my very favorite…

Such fun. It was a small class and still I didn’t take nearly as many photos as I should have because I was busy learning!

I can’t wait to sit with my supplies and play some more.

I was also  privileged to meet Danielle’s sidekick/class assistant/friend Marilyn who asked me to make her something out of the etched metal strip and leather cuffs we have in the shop.  A good reminder for us all don’t you think?

It was a pure joy having Danielle (and Marilyn!) here for 2 days.  I can’t wait book her again so we can learn more from her.

You can find more of Danielle here.

Her book is “Creative Girl” and can be found on her website or here in our shop ( I happen to have a nice stack of signed copies!)
