Teen Drawing Class
My teen drawing class at Olive Tree in Fort Collins is learning all about tone, chiaroscuro and sfumato! Here are a couple of their drawings of a sphere and a ten step tone chart.
PAstel on black paper
Great start to my student Marilyn's pastel drawing of a flamingo! She started off using Conte and CarbOthello pastel pencils to carefully map out basic color and texture and then started using Unison, Sennelier and Rembrandt pastels to add more saturated pigment and vibrancy.
Intermediate watercolor class working on ocean waves, learning how to successfully use masking fluid to preserve lights!
pastel work in progress
Here is a great start to a new pastel portrait by student Jenny Gomez, a continuation of her new series "Disney Princess Pinups"...Love it!
Time for fall!
Since fall is upon us, I thought I would share my student Marilyn's work in progress oil painting of changing aspen trees!
