Yes, I’m a student.
I think I will always be a student in the sense that one has something new to learn.
I am also a student of artist Sarah F. Burns. I am learning about academic drawing and painting.
Oddly enough, since the beginning of my life as an artist, I’ve been drawing from life. Doing still life drawing seemed to be the obvious choice. I can create set ups in my home and work on my own. Its a way of getting to know the subject prior to painting it.
Its been a long time since I’ve had formal instruction on drawing. I’m enjoying the study. I thought I’d show you my first two student drawings. The still life with the two vases was the first drawing. The still life with the two broken seashells and vase is the second drawing.
I thought it would be fun to share my classwork. Soon, I’ll start working on painting the shells. I’m looking forward to the challenge!
