Week 5 is DONE!!!!!!

This was a sketch I did for the children's book I illustrated, Catherine's Pascha. This shows one-point perspective.

This was a prep sketch I did for the children’s book I illustrated, Catherine’s Pascha. This shows one-point perspective-the lines of the walls and icons are all heading to a point centered on Jesus’s face beneath the arch in the center of the iconostasis.


I should have known.

I was able to knock out weeks 1-4 relatively quickly, but week 5 always kicks me around.  Which is strange, because I LOVE Perspective drawing.  It’s regular, it’s got rules, I can always draw a little house in one or two point perspective just for fun when I’m frustrated that something else isn’t going well.

But it’s hard to teach at the 4-12 year old level!

It took me a long time to break down, and Murphy’s Law, August also saw my Practicum, Tutor Meetings, the start of my chapter of CC, and of course, house showings, nearly a dozen of them.

Because we’re selling our house. Apparently, I’m not busy enough.

Kidding.  It’s nearly 1 am now, please humor me.  Or forgive me.

But it’s done and I think it might work (that might also be the sleep deprivation talking…)

There’s a TON that got cut that I may post later for those of you who might want something different, or for those parents who wants to explore more deeply, (or has a student who wants to do more!)

No specific Cycle 2 theme here, sorry.  The Castle…it got out of hand for a step-by-step tutorial.  My hubby suggested making it into a stand-alone blog post, and I think he’s right, so look for that soon.

Now I have to get some sleep–I have a field trip at a historical farm tomorrow.  Good night all!

YAY!! I’ve been praying (selfishly) for you everyday, that you’d have time to put more together! Your lessons are just the best I’ve seen in the CC realm!

Thank you so much for putting these lessons together for us, they are incredibly helpful for those of us tutors who are NOT skilled, gifted, or schooled in much of anything in the art world!
