Thanks for the input everyone! It really does help. Here it is again with a bit more "color" , a befoe and after.


I do think I like the extra graphite.

There you go! Looking much better overall.  O0   You could bring the darker value down a bit more in the doorway, more like in the first version.

Great job there Barry, good on you.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

I placed the new version in the previous post.

I like the light in the door.  It gives the impression that it is coming from the front windows. Thanks Val for that.

 I found it interesting that at first I did not want to touch the drawing, fearing that I would mess it up. thanks for all the input.

Nice drawing Barry,   I would add more value on the tree behind the house, at the moment it appears to be too much of a thick straight line.  Make it larger and fadding as you get the sunny side.   Hope this helps.

 :clap: All your drawing are fantastic. For a new artist your doing superb. It's amazing how far you've come from that first shaded sphere. Keep up the great work! Looking forward to seeing a Barry original.

This still life did me in. I found that to finish it was a problem. Not sure why, but between my schedule and being away, there was just no desire to get back to this one. So I made an executive decision not to finish it and move on. I did revisit the ball lesson and enjoyed that. Unfortunately when I drew the reflective ball the picture was too far away and all that detail on the left looked like a dark shadow. I tried to correct with what is becomeing my trusted friend - the eraser!



Thanks every one for your encouragement and advice.

Barry,

I can understand.  I never finished that one either.  My problem was that I could not relate to the subject of the drawing.  I find that with a lot of art.  I can't get into doing it if the subject is not part of my world.

Fabulous shine and reflections on the ball on the left.  Wow!

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Barry, the shine on the ball is magnificent.  Looking at your drawings brings a smile to my face because for someone who "could not draw", you are doing fantastically well.

your reflective ball looks excellent, well done Barry :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I would add a bit more contrast into the non reflective ball though by darkening up the shadow side one or two shades more.
then soften the edges of the cast shadows - rewatch
