Review by Angela Vizard

There I was in the very front row
Next to the artist all ready to go
He positioned Maria into the chair
Aligning her pose and her beautiful hair.

With small straight lines he mapped out the face
Putting the marks strategically in place
Measuring carefully as he went along
The image of Maria began to look strong.

For shadows he used lemon yellow, alizarin crimson and prussian blue.
For brightness cadmium yellow, cadmium red, French ultramarine and white too
Mixing three colours he made lots of shades of grey
Using them to create the angles in a very clever way.

Thanks Keith for such an informative afternoon
I look forward to making some NICE MARKS soon.
