a Carla Sonheim tutorial

This is my result from following Carla Sonheim's tutorial.   My lion measures about 6" x 8".   I had to make a few substitutions ... I used sketchbook paper instead of watercolor paper, and white acrylic paint & the back end of a paintbrush to make the dots, instead of using a paint pen ... but I am really happy with my results.

Here are my step-by-step photos:

I will be headed back to Carla's blog real soon to try out some of the assignments from her newly published book: Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists (which is on my wishlist).

*update: I got my copy of Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists and started working on the assignments. I will be posting my progress through the book in my Journals & Sketchbooks blog.


  1. Very cool. I need to check this out!

  2. This guy is so cute. Fabulous colours and such a sweet face.

  3. Thanks! I love how he turned out. This is why I love finding tutorials that take me in a new direction.

  4. I love your's even more than Carla's in the tutorial! Way to go!
