We've been missing for awhile but now I'm actively bringing art back into our homeschooling day. This is only the second project - Rachel chose the pen and ink rose last week so it's only fair that Ryan gets to do his favourite topic - aviation  ;D He tells me this is actually an F-14 Tomcat. Their sketches from today:

Rachel's


Ryan's


Ryan was complaining about his rough sketch paper, prefers it smoother

Excellent work, kids.   You both got the drawing done quite skillfully.

Glad to see Paintbasket used in home schooling - great idea.

Rachel and Ryan, your drawings are excellent.  You certainly are very talented.  Keep up the good work.  Paint  Basket is a great learning site for home schoolers interested in art.

Thanks for the responses. Rachel is actually in her final semester now and has always had an interest in art. I'm hoping she will learn the techniques to make her art even better. Ryan at 14 has an interest in drawing planes of course, and has just started drawing figures.

Rachel does have her own account here but is happier for me to add her work for comment.

OK, so I have watched the video, one question I have before I start, and that is when Nolan uses the eraser, every 5-10 seconds he takes it off screen to clean... what is the best way to do this?

This fighter jet was challenging fun.  Loved doing the mist.  Nice skill to have in my toolbox now.


Did have a little trouble with the windows in the cockpit.  Nolan, how could I have made them look better?  Had the inside darker, but it looked too dark so I erased most of the value.

Adrian, I use a Prismacolor Magic Rub eraser to "erase" the graphite from my other erasers.  I like the stick erasers best.  I did buy an electric one, but it's too fast for me to control.

Look forward to constructive comments on this effort.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  A very good try Mea.  With regard to the cockpit, I would lighten the left front window more and the second mechanic is lost in the steam, I would make him more visible.  Otherwise a very good drawing in my humble opinion.

Adrian, with regard to the cleaning of your erasers, you could wipe them on a piece of rough cloth. Nolan often rubs them on his jeans and that does the trick.
