Ann Roundtree’s comments:
Sherry is such a patient, positive and encouraging teacher. She makes
me know that I can do it, even when I feel
like giving up!
I think one of the most important things I have learned from her
is to open my eyes and see more than just flat shapes. Sherry has
taught me to see depth, roundness, light and dark, warm and cool
colors, to think about anatomy and how an eye, for instance, is really
made! She has taught me to paint what I see, instead of what I think
I see in my mind’s eye.
Ann paints with Verdaccio underpaint on
her copy of
The Story Book - 1877
Ann glazes the under painting with color.
| The classical academic method is great, because it involves not
only the artistic side of the brain, but the logical side. If a person
follows the method exactly, and pays attention, the end result is always
beautiful! I have never in my life had an art class, but I am astounded
at the results I am seeing come from my own hand! Friends an family
say the girl in my painting looks as if she could reach right out and
| Sherry’s classes are fun, with a relaxed atmosphere. She often
plays classical or other inspirational music. I like the “can
do” attitude in her studio, and the laughter, which is indeed
the best medicine!
