Pet Portraits






It's been awhile since my last post....been busy trying to wrap up my art class semester, celebrating birthday parties, our 15-year anniversary, mother's day teas, field trips and helping with school projects. Whew! I don't know about you, but this time of the year is so busy for me.


I just had to do a post to show off the end of the year project for my advanced classes. These kids are 2nd-4th grade, and most have taken art from me for two or more years. I was so impressed by their finished works. I did allow them to use a cheap projector I have- just to get the basic outline of their pet shape and to block in values. I wanted the lesson to focus more on values and painting instead of drawing. These took three 1-hour classes to complete. They are done in acrylics on a 16 x 20 stretched canvas. I'm taking this summer off so maybe I'll have time to catch up posting the rest of this year's projects. Happy Mother's Day!
