Italy and Jane Rosen Wkshp: Summer 2004

I made these pieces the Summer of 2004 while studying at the International School of Art in Montecastello di Vibio, Italy. At the school, I had the privelege of working with such great teachers as Ying Li, Martha Armstrong, Dan Gustin, Eric Holtzman and Richard Lytle. My subject matters of choice were the Umbria countryside, our wonderful model Andrea, my own self, and the backroads of Montecastello di Vibio.

Jane Rosen Drawing Workshop: In the summer of 2004, I also attended Jane Rosen's drawing workshop in Pescadero, California. We did many contour studies with a variety of colored pencils and washes. It reminded me of Ying Li's drawing class in Italy.  It's amazing how one experience feeds into another.
