About this Course
Hello awesome creative friend!
In this class you’ll be making a cute little lollipop girl. 🙂 Along with drawing and shading your own whimsical/ lollipop front facing Portrait, we'll have lots of fun creating layered, textured, splattered and interesting backgrounds. We'll also think about and connect with our inner child and bring her / him into the painting. Sounds fun right! This lesson is a ‘self study’ class and the video workshop lasts about 2 hours and comes with an in depth PDF.
Tam will show you step by step how she creates this cute little girl:

Can the Caran D'Ache crayons be substituted with Faber Castell Gelatos?
"Yes however, the gelatos (so I've been told) do you not have the same intense pigment and vibrancy and might not yield the desired results. I've never used them myself though. From the general feedback people much prefer Caran D'ache crayons." - Tamara Laporte
I'm a brown girl so I'd like to customize my little girl portrait to reflect that. Can you make some suggestions on shades to use for some of us with deeper skin tones ?
"Yes,I'm copying and pasting these colours from my recent 'Winter Soul Flakes' Class (not on BGU):
For darker skin tone use: Caran D'ache Neocolour II watersoluble Crayons, in the following colours: ochre + cinnamon + English red + brown + sanguine (russet) + burnt sienna + optional: reddish orange + bordeaux red
Depending on how dark you want to skin tone to be start your base tone with either an ochre (for medium skin) and a darker reddish brown for darker skin tone." -Tamara Laporte
