i took bisa butler's class today, and it was great. her class is college portrait workshop. we all had a great time. linda, from "eatsleepquilt" blog was also in the class. it was about 10 or 12 of us in her class. she showed us how to pick our fabric and cut out the pieces. she told us how to draw our pattern. their were two pictures that we could choose this is the one that i decided on, jill scott.
i am working on the face in this picture. the main piece that i really had to take my time cutting out was the eyes. on the right corner of the mouth, i am trying to get right.
just finishing the neck.
added the blouse and finishing necklace. some of the necklace pieces will be in 3D. when i finish the entire piece i will post it.
here are few pictures of us working in the workshop. also if you are interested in taking her class, she is having the same workshop at her studio on july 16 next saturday. check her facebook for information. here are a few pictures of us working hard, but having fun. almost forgot, the workshop was at the fabric peddlers, Nadine's shop in maryland. nadine, served us breakfast and a great lunch. bisa came down from phillie or maybe it was new jersey. i can't remember. the last four pictures are pictures of bisa's art work.
