 :thankyou: everybody

Looks great Liz :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I can see your paper is rougher than mine. If you want a smoother effect on the dolphins, you can use a blending stump or cotton bud to even the tone on the paper. You don't need to though it looks good as is O0

 :smitten: your drawing Nolan.  I learnt quite a few new techniques in this class.

Zayn, have you completed your drawing yet? It looks good so far.  :)

Well done Liz!  :clap:

Looking good, so far, Louisa.  O0.
Have you used a darker pencil, or is it the photo that is showing it up darker?

Yes Cath I've used a dark pencil, I will have to lighten it a little.

Zayn, mine is still a long way from being completed  :think: so you will most likely finish before me. 😊.

I struggled more with the water than the Dolphin!
I wasn’t getting anywhere...and just had to stop.


Truly appreciate feedback!
Thank you!
