Retta, Sarah, Dorothy, JennyLynn, Carol, Patricia, Nina and Bhavna thank you so very much for your wonderful and encouraging comments :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :hug: .
 
I am happy that i finaly did this drawing. I really missed it but still have to force myself to doing something, or else i just slip away in this aweful negative spiral. Once drawing i feel relaxed again and seeing the finished drawings did feel great.
 
However every now and then i took a peek at your drawings and i must say...WOW LADIES!!!  :yippee: :clap: :clap: :clap: You are all doing só great it is so inspirational to see al those great drawings, it really pushed me back to my drawingtools and with that i am sure i'll be back 100% in no time.

Wow! Rita, your drawings are wonderful. I wondered when I expanded the tree whether you'd used the grain of the paper to create texture. What a great idea!  :clap: :clap:  Your work is lovely and, I've just opened that page with your colour pencil drawing of the jug again. I'm just trying to catch up on the posts on it as well as others.
Well done  O0 :clap:

Thank you Tony, most of the time i use this paper for my colourpencils, i'm not so fond of it when it comes to graphite. But with the foliage of the trees it just seemd the right paper and it helped so much to get the feeling of leafs. It was only that i didn't have the smoother paper on hand, so i had to do with what was there right there and then.

that is the kind of progress that makes every bit of my work worth while - it looks like two different people's drawings - one amateur, one professional  :cloud9:

..... :faint: ....... :blush: ....... :heeha:  WOW Nolan!!!!..... :cloud9:  I really don't know what to say.... :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: .
I Never thought i would be able to draw like this, i know i always wished for and dreamed of, but i thought that that was something out of my reach, even i always loved drawing and my teachers at school saw something in my skills. My lack of selfconfidence was the biggest problem, but with your course there changed so much....
 
Your way of teaching us how to draw, no not just how to...but drawing great just look at all the beautiful drawings from all the classmates, is just awesome. You are taking time to explane everything, the lessons are very clear and easy to follow. You always be there with your honest, encouraging and very helpful comments, you push us way beyond our skills. You see more capacity in our skills than we do ourself, that is what all of us keep going and trying more and more.
 
And look  :heeha:  at how many of us did make huge progressions and produce some awesome drawings, like that gorgeous elephant of JennyLynn, and so many more. I think most of us thought at the beginning of the course, that we never would be able to draw that good, and still we all did, that's to you and your great drawingcourse. So,  :urwelcome: thank you so very much, you're absolutely the best teacher :smart: someone can get :clap: :clap: :clap: :yippee: :flowers: :smitten:
 
Val, Dianne, Denise, Carol, Carol2 and Lillian, thank you so very, very much for all your wonderful, lovely and very encouraging comments. It really does mean a lot to me, and it feels just great being back in this loving  :hug:8) , :crazy2:  family.  :smitten: :flowers: :cheering:
