Jenny, good work on Clint.  O0
Tony, I hear ya. 
The moment you find yourself mostly satisfied with a painting and think you'll "just quickly" do this or that, that's the moment to stop completely. Take the painting off your easel and put it aside for at least 24 hours, then reassess whether it really needs that tweak.

Jennylynn, no room for doubt, that's Clint Eastwood!!!   :)  Nice work!

Tony,  :1hug:  I'm glad you survived that toublesome childhood.  Your story has a happy ending. 

May each year of health and happiness cause those hurtful memories to fade.

JennyLynn, your drawing is well done!  :clap:

Tony, sometimes we live through things that could destroy us, if we let it! (Have my own personal experiences with some of those things.) It's what we decide do do with our own lives that defines who we are or who we will become! It sounds like you have learned from your experience and became a better man, because of it!

Seeing this Clint Eastwood drawing reminds me of skills that are required to carry out each work of art. From what I have read on the forum, I can see people use different techniques and different hardness of pencils to form the tonal values. The drawings have been a real eye opener and, and underpin Dennis & Nolan' painting tutorials.

Lillian & C. Thanks for your comments.  :flowers: It's very true that we don't choose our 'parents' or have much influence over our childhood experiences. For those who are unfortunate to suffer years of emotional & physical  abuse by aggressive dominating parents, they bear the lifelong consequences.
My personal experiences left me with SAD (Social Anxiety Disorder) where I'm uncomfortable in groups of people and, I suffer a form of 'shyness'. Panic attacks were something I suffered for years and, can still be triggered by 'association' reminders of those times like pencil drawing.

They say 'life begins at 40'. There's no truer words spoken because, for me & Sue it's true. Life did get better from 40 and, continues to be good to this day despite the past being ruined by other people.

The likeness of Clint Eastward....my childhood hero.....is definately there.   Well done.  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:

Tony sorry to hear about the way you had to endure all the abuse throughout your childhood.   I just want to tell you that you are special and we all enjoy your here at PB.   Through all that,  you now come across as someone who has a kind warm heart.   As for your daughter...prayer works!    :hug:

Sorry I veered this thread off on personal issue  :blush: It feels more than just a art forum sometimes. It's like Like a 'family of personal friends.  :hug: (I must remember it's public too!  :o
I'll steer back to the drawing subject now  :)

Are charcoal pieces better than lead pencils?

Tony, I think it's amazing how we start to feel close to friends here and sometimes we do need to vent. 

Paintbasket is a therapeutic place in so many ways.

I think this close community is attractive.

Tony, the one thing I don't think I would like about charcoal is how messy it is!
