Nolan, how big should I print the onions?

I m so looking forward to this :smitten: , I really hope I will be able to watch. Back in 2012 I have drawn one onion,


and had so much fun, but did it on my own. Watching Nolan and drawing three Onions will be a whole lot more fun. I'll try to get the template right, and hopefully I can draw along..and when not...I'll just wait for the replay.
Nolan,  :thankyou: so very much for these free lessons...I really love to pick up the pencils again.

Thank you so much Nina and Sarah, for your wonderful and encouraging comments I will need it  :) .
This onion was done righthanded, like all my former drawings, but doing these new drawinglessons lefthanded is a great challenge. I just draw the template, took me 'hours', the rest should be 'easy' :2funny: . We will see what kind of mess I 'll produce. Hopefully I will see you tonight

Riya. You are such an inspiration to us all.  Looking forward to seeing your new onions.  It might take you a little longer however,  my bet is that they will be as good as the first ones if not better.

Excellent onion, Riya.  You are already an experienced onion artist.  I'm sure you will excel with Nolan's onion lesson.

Jill, Doina and Mea, thank you so very much for your wonderful and encouraging comments.  I think the new onions will be just fine, I am confident that I manage to make a decent drawing. I have more controle on my lefthand then before, I even learnd to peal the patatoes lefthanded..without cutting of some fingers :whistle: ...even it sometimes didn't needed much more  :2funny:

Loved the lesson but really frustrated as I couldn't comment due to my gmail account being linked to a my old school one and now everything I do seems to link back to that site which is run by an administrator and very limited. :tickedoff:  :'(

Thanks for the lesson nolan. My first onion attempt so far. The camera has darkened it a bit.
