Copying art that I love


Learning to paint – Painting 01 – Copy of Marisa’s Cummings painting


One of the things I’m doing to teach myself to draw and paint better is to copy some of my favorite art by some of my favorite artists.

I started with Marisa Cummings of Creative Thursday. Her little characters and paintings are so sweet. When I look at them they make me feel happy.

I took pictures of my paintings next to the ones I copied in Marisa’s book Creative Thursday: Everyday Inspiration to Grow Your Creative Practice.

These were so much fun to paint!

I did a couple more trying to put my own spin on it, but they didn’t work out so much.

I’ll show you them in my next post. 🙂
