    for the last 7 week’s I’ve been teaching my friend who I met on the first Dru Blair course! She chose the reference, she wanted to do some portrait work, she picked it because she thought it would be not that hard!!! She was wrong!! She made all the colours :)
    She done an incredible job! I’m so happy for her, and for me it’s teaching me what I need to be thinking about when teaching/guiding :)

    This is Her Work, our references were slightly different in tone as my printer ran out of ink on mine! Mine was greener! CCF456D6-4070-4A8E-81D7-2D5F378FAF2E.jpeg

    Just phenomenal, your friend has a great teacher as do we, and it's good to hear you have started teaching now, seems like a long long time ago when you first mentioned you would be teaching, I would love to see your your students piece if she's up for it, has no interest in joining us here?

    This is really interesting... comparing the student’s and master’s work. There are several things we all can learn. Both versions are really great, although I like mac‘s a bit better (however that’s really nitpicking). Beware, soon she will turn your flesh into alabaster...

    I’d say that’s an incredible job from you both! I teach for a living and it’s not as easy as some might think. If you’ve managed to get across the information to be able to pull of that work, I’d say you’re well on track.

    Both pieces are fantastic. I notice your friends is a little more magenta in parts. Is that more accurate to the reference?

    That is awesome Paul! Spreading the love :thumbsup: You obviously did a good job teaching, as she did a good job learning - both pieces are beautifully done!

    Ahh right ok. Both fantastic paintings anyway. Yours does look more natural though. And congratulations on a teaching job well done.

    You are a good teacher! You patiently bring your students to the goal and give guidance. The result speaks for itself!

    A real pain in the backside to get what you/ see on screen to print out.
    Calibrating monitor, CMYK etc. Sometimes not worth the effort.
    At least with my black and white I can get what I want. Sort 0f.:rolleyes:
    Too much colour for my eyeballs dude. Will have to come back as charlie Chaplin or something. :)
    Goooooood work again, Swine!

    Be that as it may; your comments and posts, at least, are always very colorful.
