When i retired I took up making jewelry and need to develop the ability to draw my projects ahead of making them so I can desing them better - ahead of time than I am doing at this point.  I have really enjoyed this course.  all comments are welcome.
Thanks
Bob

:bigwelcome: to the Paint Basket Bob :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
You are doing a great job so far. What I want you to do is look carefully to spot the different tonal values. A good exercise for that is to create the tonal charts and shade a ball. Don't be shy to do these two exercises often O0

 :welcome: to PB!!!

I really liked your rocks (I currently finished them too) and your fish. They all came out well but those two came out the best. At least I think so.

Happy  :painting:

Bob,

Getting better with each lesson.  I admire you for getting all the way through that candlestick lesson.  I had an awful time with it.

Keep at it!!

Thanks for the comments. I still struggle with drawing what I am actually seeing. Worked on squirrel today. My wife told me it looked more like a prairie dog!

The candle and plate gave me fits, even using guide lines etc. so much more time needed! Lol!😯🍷

great job on the tonal chart Bob, it's spot on :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

On your shaded ball - you have all the tonal values in the correct places so what you want to work on now is getting a smooth transition between the different tonal values by gradually varying the pressure on the pencil and by gradually using a softer or harder pencil like you did with the tonal chart. Keep it up, you are doing great O0

Bob,

Yes, you are making progress.  Don't forget our watchword - GO DARK!

Oh, save the elephant before he falls in that deep, dark hole under him.  Oh, wait, it actually looks like he is climbing out.  Wheww.

you sure have been busy :clap: :clap: :clap:

When doing the flicks for the animals, like your squirrel, remember to keep your pencil point nice and sharp.  O0
