Student Progress

Here is a little progress report with my students on going projects. This one is a day 1 is a rather darkish background but a good one for learning image transfer. Taking her sketch..we transferred it 2 times to the background....then highlighted it some

Since the background is so strong it was determined that the horses would need to be vibrant and achieving that meant white/gray/dappled tones

So she went over everything that wouldn't want to be lost but will be darker later...such as harnesses and reigns
And then began the horse tones...

This is where she is at the end of the session
I think she is doing a super job!

She is learning to work with acrylics...exploring different substrates..and learning how to work with the mediums that are used with acrylics
today we basically worked with water....

Hi, Mary! Wow! This is terrific for a beginner at such an early stage! I would strongly encourage you to encourage her mama to get a frame for this and display it somewhere in their home. Wonderful! :-)
