Joan’s artwork

Artist friends’ feedback:

Roxanne is an excellent tutor. Her knowledge is diverse and she is able to speak with expertise in many art media–drawing and painting–watercolor, pastel, charcoal, etc. She is even certified in photography–a must for almost all artists. Roxanne is patient and is quickly able to identify not only her student’s strong points and weaknesses but, amazingly, is able to quickly zone in on what a student’s goals are and where that student wants to go with his or her art. Her years of teaching are very evident. By Joan.

This is a graphite drawing of Milo, a gift for Milo’s owner from Joan. Milo has pasted now so the gift is a lovely idea.

This is is a graphite drawing of Marigold by Joan. This drawing will soon be framed and is  8 x10 inches. In this drawing I was teaching Joan how to draw curtains and folds in material. Marigold needs a title as well.

If you would like Joan to consider drawing your cat in graphite you can contact her here and I will relay the message. This Ms. Belle completed in graphite. This has great composition. Joan is going to it framed.

The following pictures are of Me. Belle in process. Ms. Belle was only going to be drawn to about this point below, but she needed the rest of the composition to be a complete drawing. Glad Joan decided to work in a finishing design of the sofa. I especially like the sofa arm detail of the wooden pattern. That once drawn adds an excellent balance of composition.

Again, if you are considering having a graphite drawing done of your beloved family member consider Joan for your artist. It’s really not that expensive and I know you will be happy with the result. If you decided in the end the drawing wasn’t what you were expecting then Joan would simply keep the artwork and the right to display the piece in her portfolio. Ms. Belle is coming along nicely. Pet hair or fur takes time, in this case Joan is shading a section then going back add putting in the hairs. The picture directly below has been updated with values. Don’t be afraid to use the eraser to enhance the highlights. Remember what is warm tones will come towards you in space and the cool tones will go back into space. Also to keep the light source in mind and the way light is hitting and balancing off objects.

In the case of Google+ it is just a matter of time.
