A Lesson in Realism

This lesson was taught a few weeks ago and I thought it might be too advanced for my younger students, but all in all, they did a fantastic job.  At a glance, it looks like a hand, wow, how exciting, but there is alot involved with the lesson once we peeled the layers.

I wish I had more pictures, but again, its so hectic after class that I forget to grab the camera.

Here are a few results:
