 :thankyou: Lillian and C  for your nice comment :flowers:
 :2funny: I was so excited that I had finished my first drawing :yippee:  that I didn't notice that the poor fisherman was floating in air with his boat. But now he can enjoy his fishingday while the sun rises.  :clap:

After two days I've fininshed the christmasballs/reflections from day 4.  :) I'm really happy with them and think that they look fine.
 :confused: Unfortunately the scan made them brownish and took out all the light colour :tickedoff: My camera did a little better but still doesn't show all the light pencilmarks :-\
The only white in the balls are the light spots in the last three balls, all the other white is pencil 2H.
What do you think? :-\ :blush: :)

Nolan, thanks to your lessons about grip, how to hold your pencil, I can draw much longer :yippee: Normaly I just have to stop after 30 / 45 minutes, but now I can work more than 1 1/2 hours in one session :smitten: Now I know how to hold my pencils correct, I've less pain and can hold my pencil much longer  :thankyou:  :thankyou:  :flowers:

Wow!  Rita!  You've done a fantastic job on your Christmas balls!  They look very good to me.   :congrats:

I'm so happy for you, that you can draw longer now that you've seen the various ways we can hold our pencil.   :yippee:

I'm  :cheering: you on.

I didn't do this lesson.   :blush:  I thought I would skip it as I went to a class where we spent the whole evening drawing spheres, balls, cones and other shapes under a strong lamp.

Hmmm, it wouldn't hurt me to go back and do this one.
