Sun n Pines 12 x 12 oil
This is one of my favorites; from our great friend Natalie's yard in South Bristol Maine. I showed it to a group of 7th/8th grade students at our school today when I made a guest appearance as a drawing teacher to give them some pointers for their project journals. I did a demo, showing them contour drawing, gesture drawing, how to draw the negative space, and to use directional lines.. then split them into groups and had them rotate every 5 minutes. The kids were fantastic!! Great fun, and nice to wear a different hat than my math teacher one.
