Examples for Student work:
Well as most of my last posts have been in pen and ink, I decided to show you two examples I completed for my high school kids. The hand painting is tempera on mat board. This is a project I do with my Art I students. We work on color schemes and becoming familiar with mixing paint. This includes mixing values to create a more 3 dimentional looking object.
The second painting is acrylic on canvas board. This is a self portrait inspired by Roy Litchenstein. I love how you can be any age when you create a painting! However I havent found a way to reproduce the benday dots he used in his work to my satisfaction. If anyone has any suggestions has to how to do this, I would really be interested.
