our Dollar Store actually had HDMI cables nowadays for a reasonable price, maybe try yours? The quality of the cable will obviously not be the best, but it will work just fine  O0

HDMI prices have really come down lately. I got a high-quality 25 foot cable for $25 on Amazon recently. A short one should run $6-$12 in a store.

So I have started on the stroke exercises, I did one last night and one just now. I can see where I have problems going in certain directions and need to work on getting smooth lines. But I also discovered how easily distracted I am, and never really knew it. I had to turn off the tv, caught myself listening to it instead of concentrating, and then realized that when I did concentrate on where I was in the line I was controlling it instead of it controlling me??? or something like that... :2funny: and then I noticed I was counting each line I drew ??? whats up with that.....lol. Maybe a touch of ADD...... anyway I see where I have good control in some and work to be done with others, ahhhhh.... the joy the joy  :2funny:

here is my first two stoke exercises still going to practice each day on them



and a link to keep up with my lets draw album.....lol.

I just couldn't wait to try the berries, I am very impatient, something I need to work on, but wanted to give them a try and see how it turned out, then I will do it again when I am suppose to.......lol....... and compare them.



I like parts of it and see where I need to improve on my shading techniques, so ok, back to more class work  :whistle:

 :2funny: I see you've got a touch of the  >:D in you as well! It is difficult to stick to the program when you see other things you want so desperately to try. We're all just a bunch of over excited kids on Christmas morning....jumping from one thing to another. It's good to try, and experiment...just be sure you don't miss out on some of the techniques by going too quickly.    >:D I'd never do that!  ::)     :whistle:     :2funny:

You've done a grand job with the berries Glenda. Look forward to seeing the next one....in order of course!  :angel:
Cheers, Val

the strokes exercise is very boring, but it helps a lot to teach you control over your pencil.

Your berry drawing is lovely - good shadings, you are going to do well on the course  :heeha: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

actually I am enjoying the stroke exercises, I have done them many times. I can see where I have control problems going in certain directions and need much more practice on them. I do them every day. With the berries I can see that on the first leaf the shading looks really bad but on the one across the stem from it looks much better. We are headed to the smokey mtn on vacation in a couple weeks and I will be bringing not only my camera but my sketch pad as well :)

Good on you Glenda. I'm afraid my sketchbook has gone by the wayside these past couple of weeks...I do intend on getting back at it again. You'll find it makes a huge difference in your drawing over a short period of time. Keep at it...you're doing famously.  O0   Have a great holiday!  :yippee:
Cheers, Val

I have got to get back on track with the drawing course I started last year. Life happens and you get sidetracked. But I have picked it back up, and plan to set aside time EVERY DAY to draw something. I drew this last week while I was sitting in my brothers icu room, it helped to keep my mind busy and he was pretty much out of it. It was a miracle he pulled through, but its not looking good. It really brought home the point you have to live every day to the fullest, and that means for me to work on my drawing along with other things.

Bamagal,

I totally agree with you on setting aside time each day for your drawing.

That tree tells a great story.

I hope your brother recovers.

Glenda, sending lots of positive energy your way. Hope you see improvement in your brother's state shortly. Yes we must not squander our time, it is far too precious.

You did a fabulous job on the tree.  O0

I'm thinking part of my problem is living my day perhaps a bit too much to the fullest....that's why I don't get anything finished!  ;D I just need to slow down a bit and not be so .....  :heeha: .... wow, there goes a huge flock of Ibis, where's the camera .... and there's an anteater sleeping in the tree by the tiends? Got to see that.....  ??? maybe I'll slow down tomorrow!  :whistle:    :2funny:
Cheers, Val
