"Harley-quin" (Watercolor)  © C. Eastwood, 2013
Okay...it's still a face.  But the class is taking a break from people faces and we've moved on to dogs and cats.  I decided to try a boxer puppy, and then I decided to give her the coloration of a lovely little lady named Harley who is just too cute for words.  This was quite fun and I hope her "momma" is pleasantly surprised when she sees this painting!

Aboriginal Mother and Child

"Aboriginal Mother and Child"  (Watercolor)  C. Eastwood
Decided to try something really different with this painting, moving away from just the face to the entire body.  I'm not sure I did justice to the skin tones, but it was an interesting exercise and I stretched myself with this one...which, when all is said and done, is the point of being in a class.

Le Jazz

Still playing around with people, although this time I decided to go for more than just faces.  I found a marvelous photo of a group of musicians playing at night at an outdoor cafe in Paris and decided to adapt it.  And of course, you just know that they're playing jazz.
