The Road To Radiance! Day Five

Check it out...another great artist!

Today is day five of  a nine day series leading up to Radiant Faces' Opening Day on October 1st! Every day of our Nine Days will include a chance to win one of three free seats in the class, so keep coming back! Yesterday, I introduced you to Julie Gibbons. On Day Three, we met Christy Tomlinson. On Day Two, we met Tamara Laporte, and on Day One, I introduced you to  Jane Davenport!

Today, I want to introduce you to Kylie Fowler

What I love about Kylie's work (especially her paint over self-portraits) is that it gives me an opportunity to see myself reflected back from the page in a way I might never otherwise see myself. Some of my major milestones over the last year have been memorialized in my journal using Kylie's paint over methods because I love it *that much*.
Kylie will be walking us through the creation of a portrait of our Inner Watcher. She says ""The Watcher is somebody who can be objective and look on at you with great support and unconditional love - someone very like a cheerleader..." She will also be demonstrating a character trait that I am a huge fan of: Perseverance. Like me, Kylie believes in pushing through when things aren't going quite as planned, and as a result, her lesson takes us through several transformations as we learn to deal with mistakes and make the best of them.
Kylie's lesson will go live on October 1st with all the rest, and my interpretation of her lesson will appear on November 7th!

Here's Kylie's Bio

Screen Shot 2014-09-27 at 10.29.26 AMWorking in a variety of styles, using various media, Kylie Fowler is a portrait and mixed media artist, illustrator and art instructor, with a fascination with the face, particularly the eyes.  The old adage ‘The eyes are the windows to the soul’ certainly resonates with Kylie, as her level of connectedness to each artwork is determined by the eyes.
In addition to selling her artwork in her online shop, ‘Blissful Pumpkin’ Kylie also keeps busy with commissions, both in portraiture and whimsical mixed media, and is in the planning stages of establishing her own online classes, and upcoming collaborative classes, all of which will be shared in due course.
