Art Class



This week, in class, I got my students to sketch one another and here are mine, a couple of quick ink studies.



I've been meaning to share these photos of my students with their works for some time now. Jane was so thrilled with her rose and so she should be, she did a wonderful job with it. We are currently working on another flower which she is painting entirely with her fingers!!! She's such a pleasure to work with.

...and Roseanne produced this snow scene from her imagination, which is amazing, especially considering she had no artistic background before starting my class. She has a wonderfully bold technique that I admire.

I am so proud of them both!

I'm thinking that if Roseanne does not get too many comments it will be because we are all so sick of snow LOL! These ladies have distinctively different styles and are both delightful. That rose is gorgeous. So soft.

These are both lovely paintings. Kudos to both women, whose work and emerging talent are here apparent. Credit also to their instructor!

I love both of these pictures, very good, I am from MI so I do love the snow scene...I think it is wonderful, and no artistic background...can't wait to see what she does next. Does she have a blog?

I love the profile portrait. The lines are so graceful and connotative! And that gentle red looks perfect. As always you've got some great stuff on here!
