Nolan,

I have to work (volunteer job) today, but am looking forward to doing the rose on the replay.

Thanks for offering roses, they are something that I really want to learn to do.

  :tickedoff:  i will be in class, but don't think i will be able to draw today, as i just smashed my drawing hand into the door molding  :cursing:   
i am typing left handed, and holding ice on my drawing hand   :cold:
i cant draw left handed like someone we know here   ;)

Sue I am so sorry to hear from your accident,  :'( that really hurts, so just keep the ice on it. I really hope you will be able to use your right hand as soon as possible so you can draw again. I know how it feels not being able to draw :( and because it took such a long time for my wrist to even start to recover, I just had to try it lefthanded, next time I will try mouth or footpainting  :cloud9: But I really hope for you that, when the replay is uploaded, your hand will be just fine.
Just take care, Hugs :1hug: , Riya. :flowers:

 :thankyou: so much Nolan for the template :flowers: , I can't follow the classes anymore, but now I an still able to draw some of the objects you teach  :smitten:

 8) loving this!  Think I have improved on the lips of the petals.  I bought some thicker paper but found that it is too rough and even my 2H seems to be too dark with the lightest possible touch  :doh: so next one back to good old smooth copy paper  ;D

Wondering if my closest petal needs to be better blended in from the dark edge against the curled lip?  :help: welcomed  :P

Aroha! Lisa :-)

Great job Lisa, well done :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Some pencils are softer than others, so if you find that your 2H is too soft, then you may need to go down to a 4H to get your lightest tonal values.

I would add the shading you have suggested O0

 :thankyou: Nolan I will get on to that.  I actually have a 5H and that is darker than my 2H  :banghead: so I am going into paper plus to find something lighter
Aroha! Lisa :-)

Lisa, an excellent job on the rose.  I can't wait for the replay. I sat this morning and drew the template with the grid system as I don't have access to a printer while on vacation.  Patricia

Lisa,

Your rose is beautiful.

I like how you shaded your leaves,  They look velvety.

I had to got to my volunteer job today so missed the class, but did manage to draw it freehand today while I road the bus to town.

Didn't come out too bad and I only used one pencil.  I'll do the replay next week and make a better one.

aloha
