I love your animals. They both came out great! I too would classify that "squirrel" as a chipmunk. Your horse came out so life-like. Wow, one more week to go. I never saw your beginner tree. You have come a long way since that first shaded sphere. I've found that with drawing it doesn't take up so much time since I do it when I'm waiting for the doctor or when I'm in between doing things such as waiting for dinner to be ready. Just something to think about. The best thing about drawing is that you can put it away and come back to it days later and the long wait doesn't affect it. That's a big plus around here since I'm the sole caregiver to two disabled persons.

Happy  :painting: !

Awesome job on your horse Barry. :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

We were working on the gallery the other day, maybe you were uploading your drawing at that time, hence the funny message? Let me know if it happens again

Val in case you see this, I'm posting here so I don't hijack the eye post. I'm essentially finished. I will not do the technical drawing because I don't want to think too hard (the two point perspective). I went throught the lesson and understand it, and may come back to it another time. I will do an outside landscape when I can get away - no clue when that will happen. But I am combining a couple of the last lessons into one - drawing a glass and creating a still life freehand, which Im workimg on now. I finished the composition and have my sketch complete and I'm happy with the proportions. I used the proportional dividers at arms length. I just need to trace my sketch onto my drawing paper and complete it. Kinda exciting.

Here is my last drawing. Could not get the composition right, then I cut a vine of Morning Glorys out of the garden and that seemed to balance.

I used the divider at arms length method, and surpprised that the proportions/placements were not exact. I'm the type of guy that if A=B and B=C, then C=A, but I found that was not the case using my dividers.

In retrospect I think there was not enough tonal value difference between the very dark flowers and the tobacco jar. I see that I need a lot of work on the flowers.

The tobbacco jar was cut from a solid piece of marble, so it had all the neat multi color veins through it, was not going the attempt thst - thank you crosshatching.

Barry,

I think you gave yourself a challenge with too many elements.

Should the wine glass be taller than the tobacco jar?  I do like the tobacco jar (for its shape, NOT its contents).

you sure did make a lot of work for yourself with all the elements, but you have done a great job overall, well done :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

What I suggest you do is add more contrast to the table shading so it is even darker at the back - that will make the table even more horizontal O0
