I posted this rose here as I have not yet seen Nolan's lesson for drawing this rose.

I looked at the template and drew it freehand while I was riding the bus.

It needs to be more squatty-looking - looks too long.  The center needs better definition.

Please feel free to comment so that when I do the lesson on replay, I can do a better job.

Mea this is great for a quick sketch on the bus / test to see if you like your composition before doing a full on drawing painting - these sketches on the bus are going to help you more than you can imagine :clap: :clap: :clap:

Bev S,

Thank you.

Yup, moving bus on a winding road, many stops, lots of bumps!   I know the road well enough after 25 years, so I a can anticipate when to lift the pencil off the paper!

Thanks, Jennylynn.  Seems like I am doing some of my best work on a moving bus.  Maybe we should create a new "moving bus" category!

Wow, Mea, an excellent job.  I did mine with the grid system as I am presently on vacation with no access to a printer so it was pretty difficult. I have no means of uploading it either until I get home. We are leaving tomorrow and it takes us 2 days to get back.  Will miss Sunday's class too.  Am so far behind.   Patricia
