Art Shows

During "Life Drawing" class one day, my instructor informed the class of an art show open to anyone who has not been part of a juried show (art not selected by jury to be a part of an art show).
Since I qualified, I decided to enter my final class project (portrait of my daughter). The show is called Aspiring Artist Debut. I was happy to find that the portrait received an Award of Excellence ribbon.

I also entered the drawing of the cat in a animal themed show. This is a juried show and the drawing was accepted in the show.

As an artist, I find that shows are a great way to gain exposure and experience.

Project enhanced

Click to enlarge. I did some additional work on the skin tone and also adding more detail to what she is sitting on. I also added a bit of a dark brown to the back ground, but I don't think it shows much.
