I am enjoying my students this term. I have a bunch of characters. A tattoo artist who comes to class after trying out what he’s just learned. On skin… An Egyptian woman who exudes warmth… A Caldean Iraqi whose father won’t let her go to the art store to buy supplies… Several students with learning disabilities who are right in there, working hard…
Here’s a landscape by a Turkish artist, Ridvan Koskun. Very typical color palette for Turkey, earth tones and intense Prussian Blue.
