“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.” ~Greg Anderson
I am such an art-addict. Each Friday I eagerly open my email (usually over coffee while still in p.j.s) to check out the new IllustrationFriday.com prompt. Then I pray to have some free time!
Loving this week's challenge,"journey", and the quote that came with it.
I recently finished a fabulous online workshop, Photomainpulations 3, with the always brilliant Susan Tuttle (I absolutely love her blog, Ilka's Attic) and have been looking forward to playing with a few of the things I learned.
There are a few things I still need to tweak, including some subtle faux hand coloring which is a little too subtle. And some more blending/ shading. I'm trying to show motion but wanted her face to be clear. This has been fun to play with... But I have to run & don't know if I'll get to work on it again for a few days - so best to post as is.
