Radiant Light

Here we have a work of art by a student here at the studio focusing on a young girl practising ballet in an interesting lighting situation. The painting does a really great job of conveying a sense of bright sunlight bathing an interior space from the outside. 

Capturing Expressions in Portraits

The above drawing done here at the studio is a wonderful example of a well drawn face created by a talented aspiring artist. I always tell my students that in learning portraiture, the primary goal of the novice should be to make their picture look plausibly human, which of course hinges on getting proportions correct.
