Hummingbirds and Rhododendron, class drawings and lesson, adult art class, 6/6/16

Student art.
My demo drawings in 'dark' crayon, so that class could see.
Rhododendrons right ouside the library today after class.
My lesson samples photo shows the progression steps of our practices. Some further ideas popped into mind while drawing, or whenever someone asked a question! (Note the list hanging below the lesson samples.) Use any decent hummingbird photos for references.
