The reference photograph for Oh, Happy Day was taken at a picnic a few years ago; I can't seem to look at the image without smiling. Our incredible host had vases filled with lovely arrangements which were scattered throughout the yard on tables with cheery checkered tablecloths. As I enjoyed the sunshine of the warm afternoon and was snapping a few pictures, a bee happened along to enjoy the moment and provide a focal point for our drawing!
To begin our next project please view the Sunflower Startup video and print out the Step-by-Step Oh Happy Day PDF . The file is made up of a drawing guide that you can work right on top of as well as written step-by-step instructions with illustrations.
I hope you enjoy the projects in this lesson. I am REALLY looking forward to seeing your ribbons and flowers - YOU are doing fabulous with these classes! Don't hesitate to contact me with questions. I will see you all on Thursday -Julie
