First Face of the '29 Faces' Challenge......



........and ok, it actually turns out to be my student's project.  But I say it counts.  Because for one thing, this day ended up being so jam-packed I never did manage to find a long string of consecutive minutes in order to settle down for a little painting for myself as originally planned (oops).  I did however teach, with one of my students finishing up this lovely portrait of herself today to take home....:


A beautiful self portrait by one of my art students, completed just today.


The self portrait was many sessions in the making, as we've been working on these over the course of a number of weeks.  Under my guidance and supervision, my students followed my direction to work on their projects slowly and with care, while using a light touch and really thinking things through....:



Self Portraits in Progress -- Building Up Layers



And I think the results are just wonderful -- so proud of and pleased with my young students for the patience and perseverance they displayed throughout this project....
