Hmmm... seems like drawing is just not as much fun as painting.

I miss the color!

You are doing very well with your pencil drawing I agree pencil is a hard medium to use but taking the time to get your tonal details done will bring drawings to life if you could do a shade more on the cliffs at the back it will bring the front of your drawing to life   What I am saying your front of cliffs are very good it's the foreground that needs the work doing   Your first drawing is great nice perspective   You are doing very well Doina keep it up
Kindest regards

good job  :clap: remember drawing is all part of the art process. you can add colour later. the better you draw the better you paint.
I love drawing.  :-)

 :thankyou: Maryna,  :thankyou: Ray for your comments. I agree with both of you regarding drawing as a form of art. I love it and I will never give it up. My puzzle was the few comments I got after I had over 250 views on first one and over 150 on the second and no comments. I know my drawings are not perfect, some of the shortcomings  I did recognize myself, but I looked for more inputs. Thanks for yours, Doina

I think you have done a great job Doina :clap: :clap: . I am sure Dennis will be around shortly to comment on your drawings O0

Don't be fooled by the amount of views a post gets vs the amount of comments, a ton of those views are the search engines crawling for new content

Only just started to be able to play "catch-up" Had other work I had to finish first.
Very nice with your first painting.  :clap: :clap:
Also well with the second one. Just be very careful when drawing/painting a scene with lots of water and where the shore is very distant. Your cliffs are far to much inclined upwards. This changes the whole perspective.


The nearby cliffs should only have a very small upward angle, while the distant mountains are horizontal. Compare yours to the actual picture.

Doina, I had over one thousand views on my last dog drawing in one day which made me think that there was a mistake with the counter until I saw your sketchings with Nolan's comments about search engines looking for new content.  I did however, receive lovely comments from our PB family and Nolan which in total probably numbered less than a dozen comments as against over a thousand views.  I didn't know that this is how these search engines operate.  Not that I know too much about computers but nevertheless, I was startled but once again, have learned something new.

Apart from the active members on the forum who are viewing, and not commenting at times, and the search engines, there are still many of the "shy" members (total membership +10000) who regularly browse through the forum.
