Thanks Cath, I did do quite a bit of portrait sketching a few years back and I had 'eyes' stuck up all over the place to the point it started creeping Lloyd out so I went back to the spheres!  :2funny:

Thank you so much Zilpa. I decided if I really wanted to get back at my w/c and pastels and make a posh job of it, I really needed to bone up on the drawing and shading exercises. Good to know Nolan's lessons have me back on track.  O0

Crikey....that was close!   :2funny:

Thank you Mea, nice to see you back online. I fear my computer may be next... I keep getting the dreaded blue screen more and more frequently. I'm told it is a matter of time before my computer meets its demise.  :eyesclosed:   Seems right on cue, they only seem to last about 3yrs. down here with the heat, humidity, and salt air. Then I'll have to learn a spanish keyboard if I want another computer!  :faint: That will be fun!  :2funny:

I think I have a good handle back on my shading now, just have to work more on my quick sketching and people(!). I'm open to any pointers you might like to share. Must improve there if I'm to go back out to plein air which I miss terribly.

Lucky for me, Val, my computer issues were programmatic, not mechanical.  Just a few tweaks to set it right again.

Thanks Dennis, I do feel just a wee bit guilty about all those early w/c classes where I 'bypassed' putting the people in.       

So... I think I'm on the road to recovery.  ;)        :2funny:
