Very nice quick sketches Val  :) 

I really enjoyed this class - even if my clock looks like Mickey Mouse!! Quite pleased with the results though.

Great class, Nolan.  Lots of good tips.  Loved the one showing how to hold the sketchbook.

Here's what I did.  Sorry the rocks are on a different page so you will just have to imagine what they look like.


It still is amazing to me that I can now draw!

Can't believe I forgot about the class. In my defence I even forgot my wedding anniversary.

Ta Gita, I love that Nolan goes just as slow as Dennis..... and I actually almost kept up!  :2funny:   This was a great lesson and I will be using a lot of the tips on my shoreside adventures.  O0

The box and rectangle technique were interesting....my ovals were still a bit wonky, but if I ever need to draw a french bread loaf I've got that aced!  :smart:    :2funny:    :2funny:

You did really well with the clock. Funny how we both got the first bell quite good, the second...not sure what happened.  :confused: must have been a bad run in manufacturing!  :whistle:
Cheers, Val

Thanks Dennis, must be a 'like father like son' thing. You both keep me running!  :run:   It's a good thing though, helps keep my weight in check...  :whistle:
Cheers, Val

 :( So sorry you missed it Maryna, but there is the replay!  :heeha:

Don't feel bad about your anniversary.... I actually opted out of a surprise party so I wouldn't miss a w/c lesson with Mr. D., and they never let me forget it! Nice thing is they don't try surprising me anymore!  :heeha:
Cheers, Val
