I think I've said it before but I think it's important to constantly be creating but ya gotta mix it up so you don't get burned out! That's why, after my students have worked on a really detailed or complex assignment, I like to make 'em work large to loosen back up! These are the mixed-media portraits some of them created incorporating lots of texture, color, and collage.
Please forgive this last picture.... anybody have any clue how to photograph acetate without capturing everything in the reflection?!
