Hi there everybody!

After a few weeks of absence I am back in the Paint Basket  :D  Wow but the apples is quite a difficult exercise!
:sweat: :-\  I really am not sure what to think.  Comments will be welcomed.

As I said at the beginning of the class, for some reason apples are not so easy to draw as you would expect.
You have done a great job with yours though :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
just be careful of pressing too hard with drawing your outlines, it mustn't damage the paper

Eliza your apples are good enough to eat.  Well done.

Still working on pencil techniques, Ryan finished off his apples today.


Rachel must have been too busy to finish today:

Rachel and Ryan - great work on the apples.

Ryan - super shine on those apples.  This seems to be your best drawing so far.  Your skills are really improving.

Rachel, Nice to see how you have planned in your next move on this.  Good to see thought before action.

Thank you Mea. Ryan isn't satisfied with his apples. I've bought smoother paper for their sketching which might help. I've also told him that different artists represent things differently..

both are looking great :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
Ryan to get the apples smoother, go back in with a lighter pencil, eg, HB in the 2B areas. That has the effect of smoothing the contrast between the graphite and the exposed paper between

  After looking at the apples I thought they were too light.  Comments welcome. Kathy

kathy,

Yes,, the darker version is much better. 

I think a tiny bit of shading to the shadowed side of each dot will make it set better on the apple. 


Hmmm   a slice of warm apple pie would be nice right now - or better yet, less work and calories with some poached apples slices and a bit of sprinkled cinnamon.
