Val, it is quite O.K. to get excited and I understand what it means to have a life line to what you love and enjoy.
Don''t know what I would do without the internet. So you go girl.   :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Well...here it is warts and all.  Rocks and I just don't get along.  My brain understands the contours, but there is a disconnect along the way to my hand.  I'm not going to bother finishing this one-it's definitely a do over.

Great class-wish I would have done better.

I had been looking forward to drawing along, up most of the night with migraine. Eyes aren't working too well today so just had to watch.  :(    BUT.... it was a fantastic class!!!  :yippee:
Title: Re: PNI - Lesson #15 - Rocky Ridge
Post by: ncwren on June 08, 2014, 10:13:52 PM
I hope you are feeling better Val-pen and ink with blurry vision would be very hard to do.

Natalie  >:(   are you kidding me? You've done a great job on the rocks, it's just at that 'tween stage where it never seems to look right. Happens all the time with me and my drawings/paintings. Just a few touches here and there, a few more bushes and rocks and you're away!  O0   Trust me!!  ^-^


Thanks Natalie, yes it just doesn't work well. But I did look at yours with my big magnifier so I know it's good.

Natalie, really excellent for a draw-a-long. Your rocks have lots of character :clap: :clap: :clap:
I'm just a bit worried about the little "bullet hole" in the center of the ridge  ;)

 :thankyou:  Dennis for a very interesting class.  I got lost along the way and tried to finish the drawing. Anyway, this is my rendition and with more practice, I will do better.   Patricia

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Natalie, you did a good job for it is not easy to follow along, trying to draw and watch at the same time. I am not a multi-tasker at the best of times.


Val, I hope you are feeling better. Migraines can be so debilitating I know. 


Lillian, it was lovely to see you on the forum again and participating in the lessons.  Just like old times!

Patricia, the top half with all the main rocks are excellent :clap: :clap: :clap: Pity you rushed the bottom half.
Title: Re: PNI - Lesson #15 - Rocky Ridge
Post by: Happychappy on June 09, 2014, 12:52:06 AM
 :thankyou:  Dennis, the top half was done with your guidance ... well, you can tell who did the bottom half for sure. However, with your help and teaching, I will improve as I get more practice for this is only the second pen and ink drawing I have done so far.  Looking forward to a lot more.   Patricia

LOL it is the case of the pot calling the kettle black :blush: When I got home and looked at mine I was "shocked" to see mine had also been in the war with a bullet hole in the center :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Natalie and Patricia,

Great attempt at the rocks.  Doesn't look easy.

I am sitting here seeing all kinds of shapes in the rocks.  You both have some of the funniest-looking faces in your rocks.  It's like looking at cloud formations.

Not sure pni will ever be friends.

Dennis, I loved the class, as always.  I learned a lot today.   :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: Missed Nolan!   :'(


Natalie and Patricia, you've done a wonderful job on the rocks.  I know I would get lost between the crevices, but, I'm going to give this a whirl.

Hi Patricia, sorry I didn't get to comment on your drawing yesterday. The headache got the better of me and I just had to cancel out the world.  :tongue:   Feeling much better this morning...at least my head is staying on..I think.  ;D

You have done a marvelous job on the rocks  O0 I do think the foreground just got a little bit too busy and instead of showing off the rocks just blended in with them. Doesn't matter, it's a lesson well learned and I shall do my best to remember that also. I have been known to get carried away myself....on occassion....  :whistle:

Super job, well done!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Took me awhile-I found the bullet hole!!  :heeha: Looks just like one!

 :yippee: Patricia!  I would have hung out longer had I known you were drawing along!!!  Maybe Jennylynn will be along for the next one?

 :thankyou: :thankyou:  Gosh, Mea, I missed your message and so didn't thank you for your lovely comments. My apologies ... I am having too many of these "senior" moments for my liking!!!  Thank you, it is much appreciated.


Val, thank you too for your comments and I am so pleased that the migraine has subsided.  My eldest daughter suffers with them terribly so you have my sympathy.


Natalie, I am always one to hang out until the bitter end as I always feel that I "have" to finish what I am doing. This is probably why I made a mess of the bottom of the rocky ridge ... rushing to get it completed :crazy2: [size=78%].[/size]
