Lesson Six - Geneva Benza

I want to thank Jane for putting together an excellent course. I will be doing these exercises over again with all of the optional stuff too. I want to thank Zenna, and my class mates. I have learned so much. I have enjoyed seeing what everyone came up with for their assignments.

This is the skirt that inspired the color choice for lesson 6. I love the way it twirls when I dance. The blouse I wear it with has a monochromatic type theme and I am hoping to do better.
