I just finished my Rocks,  :yippee: and I really like them :smitten:
Now I only have to buy some new pencils :sweat: This was a real challenge to get all the planes right, but I loved this exercise. I really loved to draw the play of light on the rocks.

Rita--I Love your rocks.  You really captured all the little chiseled areas and I know how hard this is from having struggled with it . I especially like all the little rocks you embedded. So glad that this is greatly uplifting for you.  This site really gives one a lift  :angel:.   You are an inspiration to keep going on this class.  I too need different pencils.  I bought some pencils that aren't the same numbers as Nolan suggests and I think I can't get the subtle tonal challenges out of them (the set just skipped some of the numbers like H etc )  I'm always spending money at the ARt store.  I think I have my own basket assigned to me now  :D   Keep it up Rita!!

Now you're really 'Rockin' Rita'  :2funny:
Super work on the rocks, isn't it amazing once you start drawing how fast you go through your pencils? Just can't get enough! I'm going to need to take stock in the pencil company!   ;D
Can't wait to see the next one.... Rock On Rita!!!   :heeha:
Cheers, Val

Hi Rita

I love  :smitten: your rocks and the level of detail you put into them.  I'm afraid I don't have that much patience!

 :clap:

(ooh, these smileys are fun  :D )

Lynn, Val, Sharmila and Nina,  :thankyou: so very much for all the lovely and encouraging comments.  :1hug:
It is a real boost to go on and a very great reward for the pleasure I find in drawing. :smitten:

I started with the drawing of Nolan, but switch to the black and white photo, because I loved all the detail in it. And the longer I drew, the more detail I saw. Especially the play of the sun I love and tried to draw that as beautiful as in the photo.
I like the strong light and dark in the photo and made it even stronger in my drawing by put in the dark background.

Thank you again for your lovely comments.

Rita, you really amaze me!   :faint:  I'm speechless! 

You are doing awesome drawings!   :congrats:   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

I love the dark background.  It really enhances the rocks and brings out the great detail you've put in the planes.

You truly are an inspiration!   :flowers:

Lillian and Nolan, 

Thank you again for your very nice, lovely and encouraging comments. I appreciate it very, very much.  :flowers: :1hug:
I enjoy looking at all the beautiful drawings and paintings, they inspire me, teach me and challenge me to take a try on a new project.

 :smart: Nolan and  :smart: Dennis, you both are great tutors  :twothumbs: and I'm happy that I'm a member of this family. All the great and loving members of PaintBasket, all their lovely, encouraged, helpful and constructive critique and comments on this forum, help me a lot too  :clap: :thankyou:.

I really love it that there is always someone to cheer up, encourage, support you when you are in need of it, or lend his or her shoulder to cry on. But they are at the same time such funny/grazy people who makes you laugh, so you forget about the messed up painting or drawing. From all the places where I've bin for lessons, this is the best place you can be, nowhere else it feels like home.  :hug: :flowers: :clap: :thankyou:

Hi everybody,  :wave: :wave: :wave:
This one was hard :sweat: I started six 6 times all over again, it just didn't look right from the beginning. :tickedoff: :-\ :thumbdown:

But the last time I just did go on and after a while it realy started to look  O0. And now after a whole day on and of hatching...........I finished my cup. :yippee: No  :coffee:  :nono: , I have chosen to hatch a cup af tea,....with a little tray for my teabag.

I just LOVE it. I never thought hatching could be so difficult and so hard to do correct. Especially my little tray was hard to do, but I think :think: it looks oke.  :cloud9:
