Latest Student WIP Photos

Kookaburra by Marie Willett

Swan and signets by Louise Mather

Wiemarana by Joanne Davey

Here are artworks some of the Tuesday Jindalee class are currently working on. The Kookaburra is finished but Joanne and Louise still have to add more before their masterpieces are complete. The swan is mainly just undercolour at the moment and when finished will be much more solid and three dimensional. The wiemarana is at the stage where joanne is adding a layer over darker undercolours. The photos do not do their art justice. (My questionable photography skills!)

Pastel Art Classes will begin soon at the Girl Guide hall in Ascot on Thursday mornings.

Pastel Art Class Progress.

Students are moving on to new artworks now with Marie working on a Kookaburra, Louise on a Swan and signets, Bev on a Sumatran Tiger and Joanne on a Wiemarana Dog. Watch this space for the finish of these pieces. Our class is growing and a new student began classes today so there will soon be new art to add here as well.
