 :heeha: your rocks are just as good as mine, awesome drawing Deanna :clap:

Your mug is great :clap: it is just the table that still needs a bit more hatching. You want to look out for the directions there. You will notice they are not all at the correct angle. If you just refine that you will have a great drawing O0

Your fish is looking great Deanna :clap: All suggestion I have there is to solidify and darken the pupil in the eye, and lift out a small dot for the highlight using your Bluetac O0

on the barn there are a few improvements that you need to look out for.

When drawing buildings the perspective is very important. We will be doing perspective in week 4 so don't worry too much if the perspective is not quite right, you will soon learn all about the correct way of drawing perspective, but for now you can look out for these things:

Red lines : always ensure vertical lines remain vertical. You always build a wall vertical, even if the building is on a slope.

Green lines : The lines formed by the corrugated roof will follow the angle of the roof. So they need to remain at that angle all the way from left to right.

Blue distances : The width of the roof will remain constant from left to right so the width on the left can't be bigger than the width on the right. When we do get to the perspective lesson you will learn that it should actually be the other way around, but I don't want to run ahead on that. Just realising that the widths would remain the same left to right for now is enough O0

Otherwise you have done a great job here again. The lesson was all about putting your knowledge of textures into practice and you have done a great of creating the textures of the barn, well done  :yippee:

I drew this about 6 times, I got lost on which might be best... I just played with different elements on each one.  This was my final drawing, I think I may have been a little burnt out by then... Think I need to stop pushing myself so hard!!!!  :P Also, this is the 2nd drawing "free-hand." Definately need some work on making what I draw look the same as what I am looking at!!! So looking forward to mastering this!!

Don't worry too much at this point about trying to draw freehand - that is what next weeks lessons are all about O0

Also don't rush to keep up with the course - work at your own pace. Your forum access is permanent and you have the videos on your computer so no rush to keep up with the release of the lessons. Me and Dennis are not going anywhere either  ;D Take as much time as you need O0

Hahaha, I was just telling my husband this evening of the need I feel to keep up!!! I am so glad you said that, it makes me feel so much more relaxed! Although, I must admit, I am a bit obsessive and perfectionistic, so I'm not sure if I CAN slow down!!!!!  ;D
