You're really cranking out some terrific drawings with your pencils, Carol!  :clap: :clap: :clap:


I'm kinda lazy like Tony, but with the summer heat.  Going to the beach again with the grandkids tomorrow.  I have an unfinished seascape and lots of drawing to catch up- when there's time.  ::)

I've watched half of the video so far.  Nolan's instructions are great.  We're off for 3 nights to Southport to celebrate my 50th tomorrow but, I'm taking iPad so I can continue to watching.

Good on you Tony, you're off. We are moving at last to the west end of the island for a day or two. Then back to Utila, and wait for a weather window back to Guatemala. This is one trip I'll be glad to see the backside of.

Will be nice to get back in quiet waters for a few months and catch up (  ::) ) on my artwork. One can but try!

Have a safe trip, have fun!


Cheers, Val

Glad the motor wasn't damaged, must have been your lucky day.  :yippee:

Now we just need to see a red weepy eyed fellow   :'(   holding up an onion drawing. Then you can have a break for a day......maybe!  >:D        :knuppel2:

I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

I'm really in the slow lane!
I walked to Morrisons in Southport to buy these Onion and Garlic because, I've only got my iPad with me and can't print the lesson guide! So I'll have to use my own photo arranged similar.

I've drawn the outline of the Onion and Garlic using the iPad. So this makes it a digital using the 6b pencil tool.
I'll do the drawing as the lesson requires in pencil when I get home but, for now, I'm just getting some practice in!
