Welcome to the Virtual Refrigerator art link-up! Thank you for joining us as we share what we're creating in our homeschools. We cordially invite you to add your link sharing artwork that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges too! The Virtual Fridge link-up is open all month, with anchor posts planned for each Wednesday.

I found it hard to believe when Kennady told me she'd never drawn human figures before. At least not in recent years. But I suppose she's right - I can remember mostly cartoon style figures. So she's got on her wishlist to work on drawing more realistic faces and figures. But in the meantime, this is sort of a transition - still a cartoon-type drawing, but moving towards slightly more realistic proportions. It's also a project done using some new markers that arrived for her to review!

Believe it or not, apparently this is the very first time she's used a basic sketch like this for a human figure! So she gave me the progress pictures for this drawing too.

 Obviously she started sketching in pencil, but all the colors and details (with the exception of the fine detail on the face) were added using Magic Stix Washable Markers. We recently received a set of 24 of these markers from The Pencil Grip for an upcoming Homeschool Crew review. Watch for our full review in just about a month, and I wouldn't be a bit surprised if there will be a more few things on my Virtual Fridge using these markers between now and then!



We've previously reviewed Kwik Stix solid tempera paints (tempera paint in a marker container): Kwik Stix Solid Tempera Paints (A Schoolhouse Crew Review) and Thin Stix (solid tempera markers with a finer point): Creativity With Kwik Stix (A Homeschool Coffee Break Review).

She did a great job! I know from personal experience how hard it is to draw realistic people. In college I had to paint a self-portrait and I found it extremely difficult to get the proportions right.

I love comments! It's like visiting over a virtual cup of coffee.
