Student Refresher

It has been a great week having all my students back for a new year of fun! Last week the adult class did a still life watercolor of pears in a basket. This is my demo about 10x10 inches.

The student age class did some drawing refreshers. I wanted to make sure they could still see shapes, shading and highlights. They started with contour drawings and moved to shading & highlighting.

And today the adults did the
drawing refresher (contour, value, shading...) and a lemon painting (about 7x10 inches).
It is going to be a good year!

Hi Maria,
Nice fruit! Sounds like the classes are going great. I'm planning on going to Bill Vrscak's drawing weekend at Touchstone. Any interest? It's Oct 2-4. Sounds like you did a lot of traveling this summer!
