Some past work

Before I start posting anything new, I want to post some starting pieces.  Here are some of charcoal drawings and I'll try and get a couple paintings up soon.


  1. Hi Shannon, you are off to a great start! You understand light and tones and you have wonderful drawing skills. My best advice would be to find other artists to paint with. Nothing can compare to a studio learning enviroment. You will grow the most by doing that. Wetcanvas is another great place. I wish you success in achieving your goal of a thousand paintings!

  2. Thanks so much for your encouragement. I will make it a point to take a class locally or at least find some beginners like myself that would like to work together. I have been trolling on wetcanvas but as of yet haven't been able to set up an account. They're having some technical difficulties I guess. But it seems like a great community and I can't wait to participate. Thanks again! I have so much fun drawing- I would just like to be able to transfer the image that I see or that is in my head onto the paper more accurately!
