 :help:



First sorry for the purple color on paper. It's white, but had leaning against laptop when took picture. I'm not liking the shadowing on the bottom. It looks flat. What would you do to fix it? Also not sure about the ball...go ahead please tell me what I need to do to fix this lesson. Not just the shadow on the bottom.

It looks like the ball is falling into a hole.  :2funny:

Okay, Here she goes! Off and running. You are doing fine, Lauralee. Your ball is nice and round and roly-poly! Not easy. I would say that though you don't want too much shadow on the front side, you could just round it out a little bit. Then just soften out the line at the farthest right of the shadow as if it were just going to blend into the table and you'll be fine. The landscape looks good.

Thanks Sarah. I've erased, drew, erased, drew...back and forth.  :tongue: I'll work on it tomorrow and post it hopefully.

 :yippee: :yippee: :yippee: :D Oh boy oh boy oh boy. A friend of men gave me a Valentines Day card and some $ as a gift. I'm single and 99% of the time it's just another day. I could use the $ for anything of a zillion things I could use/need, so what did I do. I went to the local Michaels as the regular art store close to home had already closed. They didn't have the pencils I got the other day, but I got a set of 12 Derwent. 6B - 4H.  :yippee: :yippee: It shows you us singles can have a happy Valentines.  :)

This weekend is a free weekend.  O0 :2funny: :yippee:

Hi everyone. Sorry been MIA. Had a fall and bruised my hip bone so couldn't do much. I have been drawing today.   :) My scanner isn't the greatest so it doesn't show everything right. I'll have to see what I can do to fix it. If I take pictures it shows up purple so I'll figure it out. For now this is it. When I re-sized these, it changed things as well.

I redid what I had since it wasn't much. Here is my pitiful tree. :2funny: There is some shading and stuff that doesn't show up, but it is still pretty sad. LOL



My strokes exercises. :crazy2:



My Erasing a Landscape. I do have shading under the boat that doesn't show up in the picture.


*edited to say the scanner is one that feeds through, not one that lays flat.*

Your first tree is the very best kind of 'pitiful' ( it is NOT pitiful) tree to have at the beginning of the Let's Draw class, because if you really learn to observe and to draw what you really see, not what your left brain says you see, you will have a terrific record of progress. This is just exactly what Nolan and Dennis want to see right now. Don't worry about getting proportions right or perspective right. The class will give you all kinds of tricks and tools to do that correctly. All you have to worry about is taking the time to train your artist's eye and learn what your pencils can do! Oh this is going to be a great ride! I hope your hip is on the mend!

Hey Lauralee . . . sorry about your hip. . . .darn things hurt like the very "dickens" don't they!  :(
 
It's great to see you have been drawing and getting started on the course. Your tree is not pitiful, it's actually kinda cute in it's own way! What is important is that this is the marker that you  measure against to show how far you can go with this course.
Make sure you keep it safe so you can compare at the end. . . . it's such a hoot to drag out that tree after you do your last one :2funny: :2funny: 
 
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

 :2funny: My tree looks like broccoli.  :2funny: Well one that kind of is going bad maybe. I had a tree in the backyard that had to be cut down due to it being attacked by bees and had a colony. There were these two woodpeckers who had babies in it. It was so funny...let me share my story. I'd be sitting in the backyard with a friend and the male woodpecker (we named Joe) who was going like crazy in the hole they cut out. I swear if I didn't see it with my own eyes I wouldn't believe it. He would stick his head out and spit sawdust out the hole.  :2funny: then one day my friend and I heard this squawking like crazy. Margaret (the female we named) was giving Joe some lip.  :2funny: We came up with what she was yelling at him about...Margaret - Hurry up and get that nest done. I'm about to have these babies you did to me. I have to carry these things and you been taking your sweet time thinking its no big deal...blah blah blah.  :2funny:Truly it was funny with her squawking. We were just sitting inside things nice and quiet. She was really going to town when we went out to see what it was. She was all in his face. The reason for this story is I tried to do the pic of what it looked like for my tree and I added their hole.  :2funny:
