I relished observing my students, all so attentive and receptive to what I was saying; ready, willing and eager to learn all they could in this all-but-too-short 2hr session. The room was almost vibing with utmost concentration as everybody worked diligently on each task I put forth before them. It really was such a pleasure to share with them some of the techniques I use to bring my pencil work to "life".
I would like to think that last night's workshop might have stirred in them a renewed interest for the medium that is so often misunderstood or overlooked because of it's simplicity. Gauging from the smiles and expressions on my student's faces as they gaze upon their masterpieces, I think I might just have succeeded.
