Hey Mixed Media Society member!! Today I'm thrilled to bring you a *NEW* face shading lesson in FUNKY fluorescents from our very own student-turned-guest-teacher, Bryn Nguyen :)
If you're not familiar with Bryn - she's a REGULAR in the Facebook Group and has been for years. I finally got to meet her in person on our Scotland Castle Art Retreat of June 2022 (when EVERYONE at the castle got covid, except for me!!).
Bryn is truly a master of the grid method, and has taught this in my FREE #50FunFabFairies Challenge, as well as in the Fun Fab Drawing Club for the following projects (if you're a Wonder Bundler - check these out!!).
Bryn also joined us in the Mixed Media Society for her "Fluffy Fairy" in the "Hot Dog" classroom, and her monochromatic lesson on face shading in non-traditional colors like BLUE! Loved this!!!
Now she's back, and teaching us how to expand our "skin tone" palettes once again in face shading, using funky fluorescent markers!!
If you don't have any fluorescent markers, feel free to use whatever you have on hand! If you don't have a set and have been hoping to get one- Bryn's shared a link with you in her list of supplies below...

What Fans Are Saying
Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
