mike_face Mike said “The t-shirt……….Naughty!
Annie is my free spirited student who came to me with sketchbooks full of ideas from her time living in America her art teacher had shown her so many things (which made the teacher look good) but didn’t do much to teach her how to do it!
THE CHALLENGE ?
How do I persuade cajole plead talk insist someone with such a bubbly lively personality who breezes into the studio at well more or less when the class starts looking like she has just parked her Harley Davidson outside, to sit down and concentrate on drawing negative space for the next x number of weeks…….not easy!!
Two years later and one glass of wine I ask myself how am I going to persuade her to venture into oil painting…….not easy!!
One year after that and two glasses of wine later I ask myself how on earth am I going to persuade her to paint a group of pears to develop her technique instead of painting the Mona Lisa……not easy!!
Ahhhhhh
She is an asset to my art school big xx and oo”
