Mindy Lacefield

Hi! My name is Mindy and I am inspired and paint from the nostalgia of my childhood. Channeling my inner 8 year old. Painting my dreams into reality. I teach. I learn. I play. I make mistakes. I celebrate those mistakes because they become happy, magical moments from the Divine.

About this course

Yay for sweet boys! I love painting boys but when I first tried my hand at painting boys, they always turned out looking like girls. I have had several folks at art retreats ask me to demo painting how to paint boys and I think I finally have a few tricks that will help you on this journey of painting boys. It's all about muted tones and more angles. I hope that you'll join me in this fun class with lots of inspiring videos. I have the perfect colors to achieve the beautiful mid and darker tone boys. We will use the same restricted palette on all the boys....(even the girl)....Just goes to show you it's all about placement and how you push the paint.
