I am giving private lessons to a new high school student and he gave me permission to post this piece. I love the way the student was able to capture the various tonal ranges with just pen and ink, on the lilies and the lily pads, even the way the shadowing appears on the water under the plants. Truly an exceptional student!
I am excited to continue with these lessons and can hardly wait to see what he will produce once he gets a real handle on tonal ranges available with pencil and charcoal. Stay tuned!
