Gems & jewelry - student project

Hi there! Here are my warm up activities and gemstone practice. I have to say that I really really loved these activities because they tackle both transparencies and precision with a purpose, so it was really fun for me and I really felt the improvement :)

For the gemstone practice I used a photo as reference for the shape and colours.

I really like the geometry aspect of this activity and I think I would really enjoy a class on geometry from you, Ana!
I'm a bit frustrated with my white ink, though. I'm using Winsor & Newton (the one with the polar bear on the bottle) and I feel like it's not opaque enough, even when using it without adding any water. Would appreciate any tips on that!

And here is my final project!

My reference was this Tiffany ring. Thank you for this amazing class, Ana! I would never even consider the possibility of trying to paint such a subject if it wasn't for you :)
