a sketch and Suzi Blu art workshop


This is a sketch I did of Natalie Wood from Life magazine pictures here http://life.time.com/culture/natalie-wood-rare-photographs/?xid=newsletter-life-weekly#1

She was smiling with her teeth showing in the picture; I sketched her with her mouth closed. I've yet to learn how to draw smiling faces with teeth. This is just a practice effort and not an exact representation. I really like to watch classic movies, and Natalie W. was just awesome in West Side Story, one of my fav movies of her.

Also, I'm taking part in Suzi Blu's Petite Doll mixed media workshop, and will show my efforts in upcoming posts. Here is a link to her workshop: http://suziblu.typepad.com/a_lovely_dream/2010/11/petite-dolls-for-beginners-beginners-have-no-fearpetite-dolls-are-hereself-guided-workshopall-you-need-to-make-pretty-fo.html
