Halfa week offa

Ya hoo four days off from school and after this week, I need it. Practicing outside for May Day and monitoring children's behavior is not something I relish, but it's over.
I started this picture with just the skin blobs and then added the details. For some reason I really like it.

Chalk work in fourth grade. Degas really handled his pastel well. We learned it is not easy. Wait til you see the sock monkey paintings next time with "man hair."

A bit of wine tasting this week during my cooking class. We learned how to make burrato, my favorite cheese these days. We only got a tiny taste sample so I had to drink more wine to make up for it.

Here I used a bamboo stick to draw with white ink. It was an interesting technique, but not as freeing and loose for me as the artist said it was for her.
Hope you have a great weekend. I am going to see Sheryl Crow this weekend. Should be fun. What are you up to?
