Rocks, Markers, Paper




Class began with work done by several students, a small sampling of which is presented here owing to the Instructor's lapse until the end of class. Mary Vetere, Linda Harvey, and Chris Dougherty had well received work on the Homework Wall. Fortunately, JoAnne Fossa left behind her work of rocks now completed.

In this rendition JoAnne used a range of color on grey toned paper
highlighting the exceptional
blues and violets in Jill Levine's rocks, lent to us for the classes.

In this rendition JoAnne used a monochromatic palette
of black and white on brown toned paper
calling attention to the form of the rocks.


Katie Bull was able to send a copy of her work 
before the Blog Went to press.

Katie Bull Tackled the Work from last week
 using a strong range of color to render the green vegetation on Bailey Tract
 on Sanibel Island, Florida.
