This week's LFI2021 was a "mini" lesson, which is to say quick and minimal input from the teacher, not a big project. It turned out to be just a pencil drawing with some shading. Some people did a beautiful job, but I am not a pencil person and dislike the tedium of shading and cross-hatching, so I thought I'd pass.
Then I saw the photo of the instructor, Danielle Mack, and she was so adorable and personable-looking that I couldn't resist painting her. Since she has dreads, I wonkifyed her a little per Deb Weiers style, including adding a word (she seemed really "present" and alive). I hope she doesn't mind being turquoise.
