Here's my scumbling a fish drawing.  This was kind of fun.  It's neat to have different techniques to create texture, etc. but the basics of darks & lights is what makes it as well as the detail work.

the photo came out a bit bright so can't tell if the details are there, but from what I can see you have done a great job Brian :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

You are right - the more techniques you have, the more fun drawing becomes as you have all these different ways to create texture O0

Here's my latest project:  Old Barn.  I did this one entirely freehand.  No tracing, etc.

 :clap: well done Brian, for free hand this is awesome. You might want to check some of your vertical lines as they appear to be slightly tilted in places.  :) The shadows showing where the corrugated iron on the roof is old and lifting in places shows great depth.  :) :clap:
Aroha! Lisa :-)

I agree with Lisa in that this is awesome. I'm trying more and more freehand, and always amazed how much more I use my eraser!

I have loads of these types of barns where I live (one in the next property in fact) and see many of them leaning to one side, so I'm okay with walls not being vertical.

Great job.

great textures and freehand drawing, well done Brian :heeha: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

The tree behind the barn tends to hug the form of the barn, so just build that out a bit further O0

I've been in a long dry spell from my pencil drawing, but haven't given up.  Carly, my wife, asked me to paint her some of her favorite birds.  Here is what I came up with last year in December.  My first watercolor painting applying techniques from my pencil drawing course.  I'm hoping to get back to some of the pencil drawing soon.

 :yippee:   So glad to see you haven't packed in Brian.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Love this painting of the Cardinals, Blue Jay, is that a Waxwing? You've really done a great job on it! That is a super pine cone, I almost had a fit when I painted one, it all looks so effortlessly done. Beautiful!  O0     :clap: :clap: :clap:

I certainly am looking forward to seeing more!
Cheers, Val
