 :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: Nolan, you crack me up!!!!   My bird is never remotely as good as yours ... you are just being such a sweet guy by building my confidence.  Thanks so much.   :flowers:




Nina, I also try and turn my pencil all the time but it is something that has to be ingrained in this old head. I will get it right eventually.

 :thankyou:  so much Riya for your lovely comments about our Chickadee drawings.  All I can say, is that we have a fantastic teacher in Nolan to thank for the outcome of our drawings.  It was a fun lesson for sure.

Oh, Sally, I love this little bird.  His face is so soft and fluffy - so lifelike.

Sally, your little Chickadee looks so cute, you have really done a great job  :clap: . I am looking so forward to start this lesson myself...but first I have to finish my spoon  :sweat:

Patricia, you are so right  :smart: Nolan and  :smart: Dennis are such great teachers, and they really explane everything so clear but also their encouraging comments do help a lot. I loved doing the Let's Draw course, and now the Landscape course...I am sure I will love the Pencil Drawing Club even ore...finally able to do all those awesome classes that I have missed.

 I think it is their best idea :idea: to make following classes with the clubs so affordable for all. Even with my very limited budget, all is going to the hospital right now,  1/4 paid 3/4 still to go :cost: , I am able to at least follow one club every month and switch between all the clubs, circulaing between drawing, watercolour, oils, and acrylics. And right now I joined the watercolour club also O0 ...I just have to do some of those awesome classes, have to get the hang of painting again :smitten:

Have a great day  :1hug:

Thankyou Mea, Patricia, Riya, Danielle and Nolan for your lovely comments on my Chickadee.
Yes Patricia its was a cute and fun bird to draw. It sets the bases for drawing many many birds like it I think.
Nolan I was a bit slack with  the wood. I think I tried to do it from memory rather than watching that part of the video again. Naughty Naughty. One of those caught speeding moments :2funny:
