Pushing my comfort zone I tried something new an online course through Creative Workshops. It was Shades of Grey taught by Pam Carriker. I loved it. The course included 3 video lessons that you could watch and rewatch at your leisure. Pam was very good on the camera, explaining things well and easily so it was not difficult to follow. I learned some new techniques, and have started a new black and white journal. Right now I am keeping quotes in it. What was so nice about the class was the ability to watch the video when you felt like it, one evening I took a lesson at 10pm when I could not sleep. It was also nice not to have to dress up and leave the house. Now I'm spending my time doodling in my journal, practicing shading with a graphite pencil and caran d'ache colors. I never knew the "shades of grey" could be so much fun!
