It is really good to see the progression of work - appreciate seeing yours Val! Ryan had most difficulty with the clouds early on and I remember being very dubious when he showed me the sails taking shape!

Ta much Patricia, Cyril, Mea, KathyK, KathyS. Thanks much Zayn. Sorry to be dragging this out so long, these lookers of mine are really playing tricks on me of late!  :D   The next post should see this finally completed...  :tongue:

 :heeha: Excellent job Ryan. I have been wondering why there appears to be a tiller on this boat....and no one at the helm?!  Good thing there isn't much wind!  :boat:     :eek:     
Cheers, Val

I thought it time for an update.... just deciding where to put my little man. I'm thinking at the tiller, just seems right...  ;)

As an aside to Nolan's musings about what 'those things' are on the side of the hull. They would be the chainplates that anchor the standing rigging to the boat. So there you go, just another little bit of nautical knowledge for you!  ;D

Cheers, Val

 :doh:   Now I really wish I'd used my good paper!  :tongue:    ;D

 :thankyou:    :blush:    :cloud9: Nolan, all I can say is you are a magician at helping me see. You and those dang shaded balls!!!  :faint:    :2funny:

Seriously, without the going back and the practice of those balls; (spheres if you prefer), and just practicing shading patches, this drawing would never have turned out as good as it has. I've said it before...and yes I'm going to say it again. The sphere is the most important lesson you will ever learn. It will teach you values, teach you how to create and use dimension.  It will improve your drawings, and improve your paintings.
So.... learn it, practice it, and use it well.  :knuppel2:
After all, I'm blind as a bat  8) ... and if I can do it   :pray: ... what's your excuse?    :coolsmiley:   Come on...show me your balls spheres!   >:D    :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Haven't read this thread for a while and Val, I am SCREAMING with laughter at your post  :2funny: :2funny: . Your sense of humour really appeals to me. Also your sailing boat drawing is top class.


 :thankyou:  Zayn for your lovely comments.


 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Beautiful drawing Ryan.
