Kelly Berkey's Weekly Challenge

Kelly 10" x 10" watercolor on bristol illus. paper


I came across Kelly's Berkey's Weekly Sketch Challenge, and decided it was a good way to get back into painting after my break.  Every week she will post a picture of herself in a ballet pose for you to sketch or paint or whatever.

I really enjoyed the challenge.  You can see the original photo here

Gorgeous blues and purples Diana. I love how you captured the highlights on her skin and shorts, and her hair. Just beautiful.

YOU are awesome!!! I just drooled over your paintings and your dog portraits. I want to take my art to another level. This makes me want to go back to watercolor again.
