What great portraits. It looks like a fun class -- great spirit. You probably bring that out in people with
your humour and talent.

Take care,

Barbara

Dana Cooper said...

I loved it! Thanks for posting, it looks like a talented class!

Myrna Wacknov said...

Wonderful post!! I like how you show the artist, model, reference material and finished work. Everyone appears to be proud of their work....an excellent accomplishment.

Elizabeth Seaver said...

Thanks for sharing. What great portraits. Loved seeing what I presume were the pairs of artists and sitters. Very fun.

Barbara, I tell my students that it took me 50+ years to get where I am today and that it will most probably take them 50 + 50+ years for them to even approach my level of artistic competence. These are all the remaining students out of the 125 that came to the first day of my two classes. Some people are just plain optimistic!

Dana, My fav. portrait is the one by theshort young lady in the green outfit. I love it!!

David Lobenberg said...

Mryna, they were a joy to teach! Both the drawing and painting class.

David Lobenberg said...

Your presumption is spot on, Liz. You sure look weird. I hope that's your thumb.

Such a fun mix! Impressive efforts by all!

Thank god for medical breakthroughs, else how could we dream of learning for more than a hundred? ha ha

They all did a beautiful job, David!

Marleen said...

It was a great class. So sorry to miss the last day. The portrait part of the class was by far the most fun, followed by the shoes.

Ms Roxy said...

Megan Ugarte said...

Marisol's is definitely by far my favorite as well!! (Girl in green dress). She accomplished such a whimsical style while still capturing the likeness of the subject...Love it!

David Lobenberg said...

Prabha, Yep, those medical breakthroughs are going to help them!

David Lobenberg said...
