I spent the afternoon working on my Snow White painting. It‘s still a #wip. I‘ve always loved the Evil Queen just a wee bit more than Snow. 😬 Tamara Laporte does such an amazing job of guiding readers/artists in her books. This is the new one- all about fairy tales. 🍎

Tamara Laporte has put this stunning book together, in a way that it makes it so easier, for a budding artist, to follow along with no problem at all. The paintings within, are beyond beautiful, with different characters, such as Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid, and Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. There are also guest artist's with their own beautiful art work, to follow along with.
