My Student's Current Project

This is some of the ongoing work by my student. He works very hard.  He says he has never had a formal drawing class in his life.I think he is doing well and will finish with a great piece and some great experience with the process.

Current Portrait Exercise

 This is the latest version, helped a lot by the hand of my teacher Paul Ingbretson, who took the brush and loosened up my hard edges and gave me many great insights in how to proceed. 
This is what it was like after 2 sessions with the model.

My windowsill waiting for me...

 The very first marks as the session began.
