Great job Roxy.  This drawing stuff is going to be a snap for you because you are a sketcher.  Don't fuss about the trees as this first one I think is just getting the old pencils going and watching for values etc.  Mountains and little fisherman look great :clap: :clap:

Thank you, thank you very much. . . (said in her best Elvis voice!)


But seriously, a big  :thankyou: to Sarah of the molehills . . .er. . mountains; to Lillian for your positive support; to Val of the fleshier trees. . . I agree, they need a lot of fattening up. LOL


A big  :thankyou:  to Jennylynn she too of the fleshier trees. . .  fat trees are good! To Nina for the thumbs up, always need those, thanks! To Lynn for all the compliments, you make a girl  :blush:  and to Inky for seeing my mythical, landscape. . . . maybe a few more "little" people next time, eh ;)


You are all too kind, and so supportive and I appreciate all the compliments. I actually had fun doing this little exercise and think I'll do it again. . .this time with fat trees (LOL!!) Got my value strips done last night while I was cooking dinner. . .  stir the dinner. . . do another tonal block, , , stir the dinner. . . do another tonal block and another block and another and then get shouted at because dinner is burning!!!!  :2funny:

You're a step ahead of where I am at times....poor Lloyd....sometimes I'd actually forget to feed him!  :o  I'd get a gentle reminder...are we going to eat today?   :D  I'm much better now, on Sundays when we have w/c class I cook dinner in the morning so we eat the big meal at noon. Works out well all round...less heat to deal with in the afternoon and evening.  O0 I try to do that more regularly, but....somedays I get so caught up I just forget!  ;D
Cheers, Val

Val you're so lucky to get a gentle reminder, Doug will say things like "you are far more interested in your art projects than you are in me!" Oh dear, what does one say to that?


I get so caught up with what I am creating, that everything else just melts away. . . .I'm in another place, where time,temperature, hunger. . . . .everything ceases to exist.


Jennylynn. . . .it might also be a sign of how well we can turn off that noisy bossy left brain of ours and let lour creative right brain take over! LOL! Now, that's a GOOD thing!!

At my house, it starts out subtly. A casual walking by. :whistle: Then one of those long audible stretches.  :yawn: An occasional harrumph. >:(  Then the crying starts.  :'( That usually grabs my attention. Oh yeah, did I forget to tell you it's only me and the dog now??? Doesn't matter. She tells time by her stomach. You can set your watch by that stomach. Keep :painting: and accessing those right brains!!!

 :2funny: :2funny:  Oh Sarah. . . .  I got as far as the "Then the crying starts" and I still thought you were talking about a person (hubby) and I laughed so hard I almost fell off my chair!


Animals have a wonderful set of internal alarm clocks . . .  my three cats know exactly when it's 4:30 am and pm and heaven help me if I don't hustle with the food dishes!


I'm still chuckling!  :2funny:

Roxy you are doing well. How are you enjoying the experience?

I'm lovin' it! Every single minute of it!! I can't wait for the next lesson to show up, in fact I check my e-mail every few minutes around the time I know its due! Dear hubby tells me he thinks I'm obsessed or possessed, he's not quite sure which!  >:D


Sooo, here's what I've been doing with my time while I've been sitting around the table drinking coffee and eating cookies eek. . . I'm gonna get fat eating all those cookies!


"Eraser Landscape #2" complete with the "requested" fatter trees! I even put in a road/trail this time for heaven's sake!!




And, last night at midnight, while I was waiting for some painting to get out of the bathroom  :2funny: I did  "My First Ball" 



This was harder that I thought it would be and I see it's not quite right. One of my pencils had a sharp bit in the lead that kept scratching . . . . well, that's my excuse!!

Nice!!!!!!! He is a very round roly-poly little guy! and those are the nicest trees i've seen so far. And that scratchy lead thing???? More than just an excuse. It's a major annoyance as far as I'm concerned! Now lay off the cookies!

Roxy, your trees look great now.  Your entire landscape drawing looks wonderful to me.. The ball looks good too.... and yeah, I burned the meatloaf last night while working on a blue heron in watercolor.  We do get that block out syndrome once we start :painting: !... and drawing too!
