 :urwelcome: Tony, I was fun to make the chart and it helped a lot with my berries.
Lillian, Val and Dianne,  :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: so much for your lovely and great comments :1hug: :flowers:

Today I was almost the whole time busy with my berries, I can draw already much longer in one session then before. It really helps changing my grip every now and then. My schoulder, wrist and fingers don't hurt as much and the stiffnes after drawing is becoming less. I really enjoy drawing again to the full and now I recieve all these great, beautiful and encouraging comments it's worth everything, this is such a great reward and a great boost :thankyou: :hug:

Hi :wave: everyone, I just finished my berries :dance:  and I really like them :smitten:
I had only problems with making a nice photo or scan :tickedoff: The first ended-up too dark the second too light  :hammer: But finally I found one photo which resembles the original drawing best.
Hope you like it.

Oana, Val and Tony, thank you so much fore your comments. I'm still confused from the former great comments, and now I recieve new wonderful comments from the two of you. :1hug: :flowers:
I don't think I'll ever get used to it :blush:. almost 50 years family and ex-husband told me 'you are no good' and after a while I start to believe them.
My new partner told me that I can do what ever I want, I had to believe in myself. Your compliments, and those from all the others in this great family, show me, that I CAN draw and paint, and that my drawings and paintings look good.
I'm very happy with my new family, with your comments, compliments, support and encouragements.

Rita, fabulous work on your berries and I like that your ingenuity told you to put in an extra one.   :congrats:

You're not alone in having past voices telling us we can't do anything.  We believed it for a while until we found this wonderful place.   :yippee:

I'm  :cheering: you on, Rita.  :flowers:

Rita, from what you have shown us I know you are going to excel. I can't wait for you to reach my point in the course so you can teach me a few things.   :clap:
Cheers, Val

Wow Rita, what can I say, that silver ball looks like a photograph.
Your tonal chart if spot on and the berries look good enough to eat - I like the twist you added to it by breaking on off  :clap: Well done, you must be very happy with these drawings  :yippee:

 :thankyou: :thankyou: :thankyou: so very, very much :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: :hug:
Bhavna, C, Lillian, Oana, Val and Nina, Somehow my big Thank You to all of you got lost, but I really appreciate all your lovely and encouraging comments :flowers: :flowers: :flowers:

Nolan and Lynn, Thank you so much for your lovely comments  :flowers:  :1hug: :flowers:
I'm getting really addicted to drawing, again. I always loved to draw, and I'm convinced that it even kept me alive in the past. But now I really, really LOVE drawing, I love learning all the techniques and practice, practice, practice. I never thought practice could be so addicting, so much fun and the results looking great too.

So, YES Nolan, Im very, very happy with my drawings :yippee: :cheering: :cloud9: :cheering: :yippee:
It's the best medication against the pain and depressions, and after I finished my drawing I have this beautiful piece of art, made by myself. I'm still thrilled by giving myself this course for my birthday, it was the best ever idea I have had in my live. :clap:  :cheering: :cloud9: :cheering: :clap:
