This past Saturday I took one of Lisa Cheney's drawing workshops. She is a very accomplished local visual journalist. She has taught at Art Fest, Journal Fest, Art Unraveled etc. and has been published in quite a few books and magazines. It was quite a treat not to have to travel to attend one of her classes.
|Lisa starts out the class with several exercises to make everyone feel comfortable.|
|It was also fun that several of my artist friends were in the class. Zella, a metals artist joked that it would be easier if we could draw with a blow torch.|
|Lynn, who creates life like equine sculptures and|
|Marianne , Queen Gypsy, Mixed Media and Photography|
|Marianne's drawing of Zella's squid.|
|My drawing-practicing contour drawing and crosshatching|
|mine-adding watercolor to the line drawings|
|At the end of the class we switched to pencil and worked with values|
It was a fun class and I was glad not to be the teacher for once.
