Gosh! Took me ages to get through and catch up with the posts. I'm in tears now with all those Onions!
What brilliant works and determination you've all shown in drawing these.
Well done all  :clap: :clap:


PS> I'd like to see a Pen 'n' Ink version of this one too.

Oh Val, I'd love to but I just can't seem to get motivated or, find the time. Even when I find the time, I feel like I've GOT to do some art and that actually puts me off!
Perhaps once I get some MORE goodies on my Birthday on Wed, I'll get going.  :coffee:

 :nono: Tony, Tony, Tony..... you can't possibly be expecting more 'goodies' when you haven't been using the ones you've got! Come on then, just give us a little sketch or three......  ;) I'll send extra sweeties......  ;D

Okay, I've got a free day tomorrow so I'll try crack on with something or, finish off previous work! I've gotten lazy and need to discipline myself!

If it's discipline you are after, Val and I can supply loads of that in a hurry!!! :knuppel2: :knuppel2:  Where has that terminator got to?
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

Oh dear! look like I've got the Firebrand Girls at me!  >:D :2funny:  I best behave or the tears from these Onions will be flowing big time!
Confession time: I haven't done any yet  :o  Too tired all day after poor nights sleep with Sue's snoring!
Now I'm about to pick her up from work and take her straight the hospital 'cos she's had chest/lung pain from this morning after calf pain yesterday. Seriously, I told her it needs checking. So once all is clear, I'll try draw some onions in Pen 'n' Ink.
I'll be back on later.

I've now purchased access to this class  :yippee:
 After I do the drawing, I may draw an additional version of the Onions too, just so they look different as a coloured Pen 'n' Ink version.

I knew she'd be fine! She's now back cooking the tea! Good girl Suzie!
Hey, you! I'm gonna make you cry buckets of tears at my Onion drawing when I slice it up and squirt some juice your way!  >:D :2funny:
 
I'm having a drink of Shandy (without Gluten 'cos I'm Celiac to wheat & Hops!) this eve and may watch the video lesson in a bit. I might get an onion out and give it some caressing!

Okay, I am catching up on everything. I love it when I want to keep drawing--like some kind of pencil adrenaline or something. But I am stopping for the night.
BTW, everyone has done a wonderful job on their onion. Just great!!!

Carol,

Your onion/garlic drawing came out so smooth.  The onion skin looks real.

These drawing lessons are so much fun - really get you hooked.
