My Painting Students 2013
I'll end the year with my painting students from Bronx Community College. I was very proud of them this year. None of them had ever painted before.
Amaurys Grullon works on a self portrait using a small mirror.
Here is Amaurys' self portrait
Another portrait from life by Amaurys Grullon of Elba Lopez, a fellow student
Here is a beautiful still life by Elba Lopez
Ruth Luciano made this striking painting for an independent project.
A self portrait by Wendy Moquete
A self portrait by Josefine Bohorquez
Christopher Blake holds up his self portrait. I had students with a wide variety of skill levels. Christopher struggled through my class. This self portrait was a real breakthrough for him and he is obviously proud of it.
A beautifully composed still life by Alberto Arjona
A self portrait by Ivan Ayala Iterian; he made 3 abortive attempts before finally arriving at this one.
