From the time Ileane began taking art lessons at age 14, critiques were a part of her process. That doesn't mean she has become immune to the sting harsh words (or, even worse, silence) can leave when she asks a friend or fellow artist for her opinion on a work in progress. She is a firm believer, however, that constructive commentary is necessary to grow as an artist. With that in mind, she gave a quick overview of the components of pictorial expression she would use as her reference point for the rest of the afternoon: Motivation, Composition, Drawing, Focal Point, Color and Emotional Response.
