 I have been apprehensive about portrait drawing but decided to take the plunge with Nolan's class on eyes.  Nolan, you make what seems impossible attainable. Thank you for your patient and detailed teaching. I truly love these classes.

 :thankyou: Thanks Mea. Yes, that was an excellent class. I really learned a lot. What will be interesting is when I do a portrait of someone. How do we even begin to get the tiniest details that create the characteristics of the individual? I am fascinated by those who can draw someone's likeness.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Kathy, you have done a great job on the eye and yes, Nolan, as is Dennis, both wonderful teachers who "get through" to me too.  Just love the way they conduct their lessons.

My absolute favorite of all  so far was doing the portrait drawing classes. Ive done random portraits in the past and after doing the PB classes I look back at them now and  :blush: see they were really not good at all 

Going by your eye drawing you going to be popping out some great portraits soon  :painting: :twothumbs:

Well done Kathy! Great job on the eyelashes, they are still a bane to my portraits....that, and cornrows!  :faint:
BUT,  I am improving!  O0 ;D

 :thankyou: Patricia. I couldn't agree with you more about our wonderful teachers. I can not express how glad I am that I found PB. Dennis and Nolan are talented artists AND extraordinary instructors.

 :thankyou: Val. Actually, the eyelashes were the easiest part of the drawing for me. Of course, I was following Nolan's advice word for word. We will see when I do an eye on my own.   :o I'm going to tackle the older eye next.  That one looks really complicated.   :-\ We shall see.

This eye was a fun challenge. I have a lot to learn about drawing wrinkles. Practice, practice, practice! O0??????

Nice work on the wrinkly eye.  I have not tried that yet.  You have just challenged me.
