|Sea Turtle by Debra Cox|
Every now and then I've just got to do a little bragging on my students. I have amazing students in my local classes. Here is a colored pencil drawing created for Debi's granddaughter. It took many many patient hours to create.
|Vintage aluminum cups by Justine Hennessy|
My online students at Creative Pencils are no less amazing. How proud I am of them as they bravely move forward through the workshops to build their drawing skills. In the Pencils Series, 101, 201, & 301, the students learn to draw what they see and the basics of shading. They move forward quickly. These shiny vintage aluminum cups were drawn as a part of one of those shading exercises. I love that Justine captured the sheen of the metal.
|Cat portrait by Sandra Petersen|
|Several of my Creative Pencils students have been studying their way through a workshop on creating cat portraits in graphite. This is one of the examples of the wonderful work they are producing. Look at those eyes. They look right into your soul. Good job, Sandra.|
And now, as promised, today is the day to announce the winner of my drawing from the GYB event held by Vicki of 2 Bags Full. Thank you Vicki for this lovely event. I know you worked many hours to create it. I promised a drawing for a prize on February 1. The prize I offered was an 10" x 8" giclee fine art print of my Dancing Swan drawing. The name chosen through a random drawing was Patty of Patty's Pretty Things. Patty, I will be shipping this Dancing Swan off to you in a few days. I hope you enjoy her.
