northwest art league demonstration


Enjoyed doing the demonstration for the art league this morning.  The crowd was very responsive and we could have done more if we had a longer time frame.  This is one of 3 pieces I started, it is on paper about 15 x 22.  Will post more later when I finish.

Bryan/College Station


Did a demonstration for the art league in Bryan, what a nice group of people and enthusiastic.  Hopefully I can do a workshop there in February.  Also got to see some old friends I hadn't seen in quite a while.  They have a beautiful art center, really impressive.  This was a drawing I had from a model session, and showed some of the techniques I use to do a finished piece.
