This is my first try at silver after watching a dvd lesson I purchased from Jacqueline Gnott. If you are looking for a good artist to learn from, this is your person! She kicked my art to a whole new level. This is done using her reference photo she sends with the video. Worth every penny in my opinion. I still must work on the lemons, I can't sell this piece so when I get them right I am going to send it to my mother in law.
