Zayn, ta very much. Nice of you to say so.

Ta much Maryna,

Patricia, I have to say this is quite a difference from my recent tree studies. It's almost as if I had forgotten how to sketch! This is just the ticket to get me going again.  :clap:

Many thanks Jenny, I'm really looking forward to having a go at the next one.  :yippee:


Cheers, Val

Val,

Your scribbles look better than some of my "real things."

Funny you should say that Mea....  :2funny:    I was getting so put off with myself and my sketching of late. This is going to give me a huge turnabout, and all in a couple of hours alone with Mr. D. !! Who knew?  ;)
Cheers, Val

It is a tendency I must get control of. I have my outline, all is going along nicely...then this maniac   >:D   takes over and I just can't stop!  :eek:   I sometimes have the same happen when painting. Things just keep getting bigger, and bigger, and BIGGER,  and .....  :heeha:    :2funny:

 :2funny: :2funny: Just a small shrubbery please! (Monty Python fans forgive me) Nice work Val!   O0

Pretty good looking scribbles, Val!   O0


Sending our brushes and pencils to Dennis and Nolan for re-training?  What a novel idea!   ;D

Geez, Val, the dog course has got my pencils 'clicking to go' .... I can hear them rattling in their containers but my big problem for the moment is time management .... so much to do and so little time.  Nevertheless, I am amazed at how fantastic your trees/shading etc. are.  I keep going back and taking another look and another look ....... makes me want to sign up for the course but I have to hold on until I see how the land lies in the New Year.  This business of having to budget makes me sick ..... the joys of being a Pensioner!!!!!    Patricia

Lillian, believe me there are days!  :crazy2:    Thanks much for your comment.

Have got to stop hitting the post before I'm done!  ;D

Patricia I understand. We just have Lloyd's pension to work with, I look at the bright side...I don't have to worry about keeping a budget....you need money to have a budget!  :heeha:

Thank you Germa... I wish they behaved that well ALL the time!  :2funny:

 :thankyou: Vjah, it is amazing how much we have tucked back in the storerooms of our minds. I guess sometimes it just takes a good prod to clear the cobwebs and suddenly the light breaks through, and all these things we 'used' to know how to do resurface.
I can't wait to see what cobwebs Dennis shakes out in the next lesson!  :heeha:
Cheers, Val
