I taught my first official private lesson on Saturday. This student is 7 years old and we worked on developing marking techniques using oil pastels. This was also a still life art piece. The lesson was held at La Colina Park. It is such a great experience to draw in the outdoors!
Types of markings used in this project:
All of these materials and types of marks were taught before the drawing began.
My Mantra: Strive to be the best me and improve a little every day. Be compassionate, especially to those who may not practice it. Continue to learn and love. Take a moment multiple times each day to breathe. Forgive myself and forgive others. Read books. Live what I preach. Accept others. And above all, laugh every single day. (P.S. I have an infatuation for horror and disturbing and dark true stories.)
