Sea Life 2
I would like to send all the people who follow my blog a BIG thank you. I just reached 200 followers.
When I decided to start a blog, I figured maybe I’d get ten people following.

I have taken a Botanical Illustration class at the Digital Art Academy (DAA). They have classes for the app I use to paint, Painter X3.
Botanical Illustration refers to the kinds of highly technical drawings that were in vogue in the late 1800’s. I didn’t stick strictly to the style they used back then. I updated it for now.
I signed up for this class on a lark. I didn’t know I could paint like this. I ended up kind of dreading the class and wondering what I had gotten myself into.
Then, I decided to have an attitude change. I decided to show up, put forth my best effort and have fun. Guess what, I did have fun and amazed myself at what I could do.
