Stuck at doctors again! Sick of waiting been here and hour and counting! Short staffed , appointment means be here not when  you 'll be seen!<br />So decided to scribble

(Not sure why picture has turned sideways during upload as its the right way up in my photo library)



All fixed!   ;)
Cheers, Val

You have a lot of fine detail, Abbietaya.  :clap: The floorboards look great. Your glass and reflection is nice and transparent above the water line and at the base of the glass. I'm not able to follow the reflections at the bottom of the glass that holds the water. Did you do this from a reference photo? Would love to see it to compare if you did .   ;)

This has come out very well! The wood and its grain is very realistic!

Liz,
Excellent work on the wine glasses and wood. 

Also, noticed that I never got a chance to comment on your scribbles in the doctors office.  Good work.  You made great use of your time.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  With a few tweaks on the reflections, you will have a super first try at glasses which are not the easiest to draw. You are doing so well, carry on the good work.

The gentleman reminds me of my uncle sam, the way he is holding his head, the smile. Unfortunately, uncle sam died @ 62 so never reach this gents age. He looks well , obviously looks after himself.

This is well done, Liz.  Looks like such a friendly gent.  Great eyes. Shirt collar (including the button) and the neckline of the sweater are so well drawn.
