  1. Outstanding!! Did you use Cubism? I just read in my daily Trivia about Picasso & who created cubism with him. Good job your progress is amazingly moving quickly. Keep up the good work.

    1. Linda, Thank you! No it’s not cubism – the “box” you see around the sketch is how the teacher showed us to get the features in alignment. Since it’s a live model it helps to envision it as best as possible as 3-dimensions. The box helps to do that. I’m learning!!

    1. Jacqui,
      thanks for the “amazing”!!!! It’s more like a human face because we had a live model. I think that copying pictures from other 2-dimensional photos – although great drawing exercises – tends to make the drawings flatter.

  2. Judy, you are an amazing artist. I think the word I’m looking for is “gifted.” There are many galleries in the OC. You should be thinking about a one-woman show.

    1. Chuck,
      You are very kind. I have some talent but if you saw some of the other student’s work . . . Maybe with more practice I could get there. Thank you for your encouragement. I’ve never really had any and consequently have never taken anything I’ve done artistically very seriously.


  3. Did you take art classes before this one? I thought you said you were a beginner. This is incredible. You are so talented, Judy. I love this. I can sense the model’s spirit. Beautifully rendered.


    1. Shari,
      I took two beginning art classes in college (one my freshman year and one my senior year), 2 from junior colleges over 10 years ago, which I never finished because they were too hard. However, I remember being able to draw Albert Einstein from a photo for a report and copy a scene in chalk from a magazine onto the school room wall. I think I must have had talent as a child but it was never encouraged because art wasn’t a profession and all artists were “starving”.
