I am taking a nature drawing class through Sebastopol Center for the Arts. The instructor is Nina Antze, and she is wonderful. I knew I had stumbled upon a great teacher when I saw the level of work of the other students. I have a long way to go! Nina is fun, has a dry sense of humor, and always knows just what to say to help me past my stumbling blocks. I love technical drawing, and creating the shape is easy for me, but working with blending colors is something I have little experience with. Here are my first drawings.

Fuyu Persimmon


Persimon Leaf

Blackberry leaf 1

Blackberry leaf 2

Blackberry leaf 3



Wow, Nancy these are great. I have seen her class listing before but have not taken it. Love your work!

Thanks, Dennis. If you get a chance to see the Member's show again, Nina has a drawing on the South-Facing wall, and also a few of the students in my class have drawings in the same vicinity as hers - look for the hydrangea, the onion, the poppy.
