Usually, I feel students are happier choosing their own subject matter to paint. However, sometimes, especially in a beginning class, it can be really useful to see the steps it takes to make a complete painting. Sometimes just watching the way a teacher wiggles her brush or how he dabs at the paint or how they hold the pen can speak more then a thousand words from the teacher. I find this to be true when I take classes, do you? Tomorrow, I will post pictures of the works done in class. * You should be able to print this out and do the lesson if you want to.
