Eyes of a child...365 Days of Drawing

Third and final sitting is now posted here

Another drawing done in two sittings on different days. Total drawing time about two hours or so. I may go back in tomorrow for a third sitting and rework the hair... I post early stage and today's.

Today I get to teach a teen class at The Vita Art Center in Ventura. Always fun to not only draw the eyes of a child but see art created through them.

Do you learn about your own art from the teens??

Yadis...I do too. I think I lose a lot in the finish. Something I am looking at!

Marian,,,teen teaching is a NEW and very different challenge from teaching adults. But when that young art mind walks into the room, with pure talent, it is a gift to the teacher. They are hearing great principles of art early! And you see the lightbulbs go off in some, but NOT all.
