Looking for Expression

I think I started my Expressions Class back in February this year and now it’s May. So little embarrassed to say, it has taken over three months to compete it, and today I have finally uploaded the final video. It is in the portrait that I tried to paint in the style of Wabi-sabi.

Wabi-sabi is described as the art of beauty and imperfection. It denotes asymmetry, melancholy, simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes. It’s aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.

So here she is, let me know if I succeeded.

  1. Renata,

    I must say your course is one of the best courses I have ever purchased. To tell you the truth for me personally there was so much material that I wanted to practice it was like a present when you presented or did another video. I want you to know what an excellent course this is.

    Have a wonderful day,

  2. Thank you, Renata, for one of the best courses I have ever done. You have been amazingly generous with content, and it is all such high quality. There are lots of exercises to focus practice, and watching you paint in real time is so inspiring. I am quite sure that I will be referring to the videos over and over, and continuing to learn new things with each re-watch. I also greatly appreciate your warmth, kindness and helpful appraisal of the work that I and the other students have presented to you in the Facebook group.
