Underwater Photography

Posted in Photography Fun on January 16, 2015 by lindsayjanetroberts

Since my birthday last year every time I have snorkeled, I have taken my trusty point and shoot Nikon with its plastic sleeve with an extra lense with me. I thought underwater photography would be easy and was surprised to find the elements I had to deal with. First off I wear trifocals, so focusing turned out to be an issue as well as reading the back of the camera to make adjustments. The other surprising thing I should have thought about but do now is that water acts as a lens. Any way today I looked through some of my favorite photos and posted them here to share.

Got to teach carving to my advanced art students in Bisbee. Here is my sample to show them how to carve depth into a pumpkin and not carve a traditional style pumpkin.

My Drawings

Posted in Misc. Art Works on July 22, 2014 by lindsayjanetroberts

Thought I better start this thread. I have done several drawings in the past year as assignments I make my kids do in class. This top one however is in the planning stage. Am going to introduce Zentagle art and I think I took this one a little bit too far?



Below are samples I did for my students. The photos are not the best since I used my phone. The top one is a still life done in homemade charcoal. The next one was an exercise in count our lines using colored pencils. Following that is impressionism done with tempura paints followed by three shading techniques in graphite.
