Riya--Really a splendid drawing dear.  You are such an inspiration in perseverance.  You are a natural with either hand.  That onion skin looks so paper thin and just perfect.


Cyril, a marvelous drawing!! How long did it take you all? :clap: :clap:

Well done Cyril! Since I am already behind, I think I will give this a try. I have become far too grid dependent. Time to shake it up a bit. Thanks for the inspiration.

Here we are, once again the last of the lot. . . . . .
This was without a doubt, the most difficult of all the things I have undertaken to draw! I mean white on white. . . really, Nolan how much harder can it get? ??? ? The beauty of this lesson was the way it made me see and develop all the different values. . . .  and there were tons of them!
Comments & criticisms are welcomed. . . . .

My word Cyril, you are an excellent artist, drawing the onions free hand. Excellent.

Bev, your onions are very well done too. Gosh, I think everyone is excelling under Nolan's tutorship.  Wonderful and so exciting.

Very nice, Sarah, even if you finished later.  What matters is that you persisted and did a good job!  :flowers:
