Think you can't paint people?

All ages can draw people!

After 6 various classes, Sandy felt she could expand into people and was more than delighted with the difficult subject she chose! Look at her husband in the water with their Golden Retriever!

And Julie, who usually comes with Sandy, created this wonderful painting of a baby on the beach! Stunning efforts by determined painters!

Beautiful work and they created paintings of the Ocracoke, Cape Hatteras  and Cape Lookout lighthouses.
