This was a very enjoyable and worthwhile lesson.  I see now that I want to have an electric eraser.  You can tell by the number of white flowers that I was at quite a disadvantage.


I used Strathmore 80lb. drawing paper.  Would something else have been better?

My scan is grainier than the sketch.

I think I improvised in a few places.

Regardless, it was fun and I learned a lot.

Nice work on your light house, Sherri.  Did you have an electric eraser to do all those flowers?

I'm so glad I took this class.  Yes, good fun.

Sherri,

What kind of electric eraser did you get?  Would you recommend it?

Great job Mea, depending on what texture you want as to what paper you use. I really like your texture too. :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :thankyou:  Sally, Mea, Sherri, Natalie, Kris, Danielle and Retta for your kind comments.  It was a fun lesson as they all are and we continue to learn and expand our knowledge. 


 :clap: :clap: :clap:   Lovely lighthouses Zilpa, Sherri and Mea.




Mea, I have a Koh-I-Noor electric eraser and I love it.  I have had it for a long time and never had any problems with it at all.

 :yippee: :clap: :clap: :clap: Mea i realy like your drawing, love the colour contrast, the water is sweet, the lighthouse is very well done nice rounding.  The only little thing I would change is the big clouds near the horizon line they are big, the further the smaller, but maybe it is a conglamoration of clouds.
You are becoming quite the artist.

Oh, dear, Danielle.  I hadn't thought about those clouds being that big in front.  They seemed that way in the reference photo. 

I'll keep that it mind for the future.  Too late for this one.  I am sending it today to my friend in Massachusetts.  She collects lighthouses and is the perfect person to get this sketch.
