My heart is with portrait in oils, maybe there is a big place for portraits in pencil too, in that heart of mine. ;)

What I most appreciate about the Let's Draw course is that it introduced me to a variety of drawing styles, skills and approaches to problem solving and laying out a drawing. I guess I would enjoy any of the above suggestions. And I wouldn't mind tackling both realism and a more relaxed/spontaneous type of drawing. Maybe even some working from masterworks? Landscapes, too. :thankyou:

If pencil drawing is at the heart of every masterpiece then I am conspicuously heartless. :smitten:

Well I am back, been up in North Carolina House for a while, not good internet service there.  Now that I am back in FL I can join Forum again  :yippee:

Nolan, I am looking forward to these classes  8)   what would I like to see done  ::)

Critters... Birds (many types, Feather details), Dogs (all types of Fur), Cats (long and short-haired), Horses, Cows, Bears (wild ones, not Teddy types)

Also Scenes... Mountain, Fields, Barns, Rivers, Streams, Rocks

Flowers of all types

Can't wait for classes to start!

BTW  Any Live Oil  :painting: Classes on the Horizon? 

Since I have been out of the Loop for a while, I may have missed this, but any news on your "Other Project"?  (or is this it?)

hmmm my list is sooo long, I can sum it up in one word though EVERYTHING  :2funny:

Ok my suggestions: animals (all kinds, with all kinds of hair, skin, scales, fur) people (full figure ((posing and in motion)) and portraits) also various facial expressions, landscapes, drawing in plein air, birds, flowers, water (waterfalls, ocean, lakes and rivers), sky including clouds, drawing very realistic, fast sketches, buildings, boats, trees shrubs etc, still life, basic items like buckets, wheelbarrows, pots etc , reflective surfaces, glass... so basically anything and everything

A little far fetched but maybe just  also a special class - something on comic style doing  illustrations and doing caricature.

Maybe also drawing with coloured pencils?

I want to be able to use what I have learned and drawing anything.

I can think of thousands more things  ;)

thanks for the suggestions so far, keep them coming...

pencil drawings can take longer than paintings to complete. Do you want me to :

1) do "rolling" classes where we draw until time is up, then continue next week, or
2) do you want me to complete a drawing per class (this may mean that I will do the actual drawing before hand and then edit the video of the drawing down to the two hours available in the class. I then play the video during class and talk through the process, answering questions as we go) or
3) Do a topic per class, but then just show the basic steps of each portion of the drawing. This may mean that I will not complete my drawing in class, but you will have all the info you need to complete your

Nolan. . I think the idea of  a "rolling" class is the best one. With a "review"? at the beginning of the next class??
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!
