Hooray for Isabelle!!! After so much time invested in this project. She did a couple preliminary sketches, a couple trials on line quality and worked for hours on the shading. Some of the work was also done at home.
With all that dedicated work, motivational pushing from her mother and myself, and some sweat and tears, Isabelle pulled through and earned the honor of being recognized by the GFWC Dublin / San Ramon Women’s Club. She won Second Place in the 2014 Student Art and Photography Contest.
I am so proud of you Izzy!!! Hope all is well on your summer travels and looking forward to working at the studio with you.
Koala Okay! is a stippled drawing that my student Isabelle created. It is called Okay! because Isabelle had a habit of saying Okay in a drifty confused way when she first started this drawing. The drawing is beyond Okay though, it is fantastic!
Through this difficult project Isabelle has developed a better understanding of lighting, shading, and creating smooth gradients. Also she developed something invaluable… extreme ninja assassin like patience and a tolerance for work. I have noticed that she focuses better during class now and is much less distractible.
Excellent work, excellent development into a civilized human being, excellent attitude Isabelle!.
