We all use short cut methods at times.

I always do that :whistle: I drew the ballerina with transfer paper. And I planning same thing with pencil drawing dolphins too.  ^-^ :-X
Please do not forget! My English is not very good.
If something I write breaks your heart or if it sounds disrespectful to you, it's google translator fault :)

I liked the look of towels hanging on my bathroom door so thought I'd give them a go. Thoughts? Must remember to rotate before uploading!

Looks good :clap: :clap: :clap:

It is a nice composition eh? :heeha:

Add more contrast to the folds so that they go from light to darker as they curl away from the light. This will give you more depth O0

My other half wanted me to try my hand at drawing Johnny Depp, I can't think why. Anyway here he is in all his glory.

 :welcome: Hi, Dave.  So glad to have you join us! I did no art in all my life and found Paint Basket when I was going on 72.  I learned so much about drawing and painting from Nolan and his father. As Dennis said you have ‘a good eye and hand coordination’.  You also have interest and motivation, the makings of a great artist!  :clap: :clap: :clap:


-Liz
