Wow...I'd be lost without help of the forum 'family'.  I lost the numbers to post....Thanks.
Here is the last of my weekend sketching.


I need your input.

You are going great guns now, awesome stuff

Fish - did you enjoy the scumbling? The technique is great, but still that missing mid tone. Scribble some mid tones in with a B or 2B pencil to get that transition between dark and light. That will complete the rounding on the fish nicely O0

Barn - You did it.  :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
Great contrasts in this drawing  :heeha: You have light, mid tones and darks and look at the result - Your best drawing to date  :congrats:

Keep it up  O0

 :thankyou:   I'M NINE FEET TALL!!! Thanks, Nolan...I'm trying to pen and ink the fish, but I'll 'repair' this one first. Thanks, again.

Tousabella, you're progressing well in the Let's Draw Course!   O0 O0

 :thankyou:    :thankyou:   I can see where I'm not doing my best, so that really helps.  I LOVE this course.
Thanks again, ....you guys make me feel that this is really worth the effort. You are a great 'family' and I sure appreciate the input. My Tutors are the BEST.....they teach with such expert explanation and help you in any way they can.  I am so blessed to have found this site.
 :hug:  to everyone!
