I really find the "lets draw" tutorials very helpful.  At my local art class (hobby) we are working on edges, lines and forms.  How wonderful to combine tutorials and my classwork.
The theme this year is "free as a bird" ... not just literally speaking, but also figuratively .. as to become free in your artwork.

Here is some of my attempts.
Voël  2b  : Charcoal outLINE (hard edge)
Voël  3b  : Used a real feather and black paint
Voël  4b  : We had to "frame" a part of a big picture to demonstrate shapes by using the negative spaces

Some great work there Trudie, Voel3b is exceptional though. I love the flow that you have created in the drawing.

You art is really improving fast now.

PS - Glad you are enjoying the Lets Draw pencil drawing course - I hope we get to see some of the drawing from the course too  ;)

Thanks Nolan.  Much appreciated. (Veral omdat ek nie 'n "natuurlike" teken talent het nie).

I do have to rely on "measurements" and shapes ... techniques.  That is why I really find the Drawing course so helpful.

Trudie I like this drawing. The group of three work very nicely together.
I have just one problem with the drawing and that is: don't echo shapes so close to each other. Take a look at what I have done to your picture (Don't go and change it now!) Just remember this for the future. See the difference it  makes.

Make changes to suit the composition even if the photograph says otherwise. It's your drawing - you can make all the changes you want ;)

Thanks for your input Dennis.
I'll keep this one to show at class on Saturday (as it was "homework") but I'll make an attempt at another one.

Wow...I can actually see your drawings. Can't expand them but from what I see they look great. Still hoping to get the drawing course soon, keep going. I tend to learn a lot from studying other's works, you may have unwittingly become another teacher for me! Many thanks to all.
Cheers, Val
