Jennylynn,

Don't think I can ace the drawing course, but will give it my best shot.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Thanks, Patricia.

I have a fun competition with myself to see what I can do better each day. (Some days the idea wins over the execution.)

But, yes, such a fun way to spend time.

Thanks, Ray. 

I hope to have the berries drawing done today if Christmas preparations do not get in the way.

Hope you have a happy Christmas.

Thanks, Germa.  It's coming along fine.  Buut Day 5 will actually take longer since Christmas stuff is impinging on my drawing time.

Day 5 or is it 6? - The Berries

I took this photo after dark, so there is a bit of a glare.


I really learned a lot about the tonal values of the different pencils.  It took a long time, but worth the effort.

Please comment so I'll know what to do better next time.

Fun stuff isn't it Mea?  O0 We talked about consistency with a light source on your palm trees, same thing here.  The light should be hitting all the berries in the same place.  Nice work on the reflected light on the bottom of the berries and good rounding and the leaves look pretty good too.  All in all a good exercise! :clap:
