This student went swimming and ran into a school of jellyfish. She was stung several times but luckily had her underwater camera and was able to capture this photo. Just kidding. She took the photo at the aquarium.
This student was interested in drawing an eye so I recommend she try her had at using gray paper with black and white charcoal. She ran a tutorial to accomplish the results. Interested to "see" (lol) where she will take it.
Everyone like whimsical things and what is more whimsical that three elephants taking a bath in a wooden tub?
This is a drawing based on the underside of the pier. The student colored it with marker but she wasn't happy with the results at all. She flipped it over in an effort to make it go away but what was revealed on the other side was rather interesting.
Several other works still in progress....
