The last weekend has been crazy! Between grading my mountain of papers, my dog getting super sick, preparing and teaching a spirited easel class, and other little things, I've gotten a bit behind on the art challenge.
|My dog Einstein..yay for a vet visit tomorrow!|
I've started teaching two hour painting workshops at the South Lake Artist studio in Clermont. My students walk out with a completed painting in two hours. They are amazing and it is so much fun! (these ones I don't have to grade)

So today I finally got to work on a colored pencil drawing. I just got the book Colored Pencil Painting Bible in the mail and I have to say that it is amazing. I'll be using it as a guide as I teach my high school students the basics of drawing with colored pencils. Here is what I was able to finish off today. Not much, but I loved learning new ways of layering, blending, and preparing my paper. The pear was the first exercise in book.
