I have now completed week two, and here are my drawings for these lessons.  :-\
I can feel I have used a lot of my right half of the brain, but hope there is more capacity left in there :)

Coffe cup (freehand)


Teddy bear


Fish


Barn (freehand)

Nice cross-hatching and scumbling, Vidar.  You do very smooth blending, especially on the teddy bear.

You are doing well at "going dark."

I agree, excellent job with all of them. :heeha: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
I had to really look to find something I could ask you to fix ;D ;D ;D
so here goes : on the fish - the dark contrasts on the body end too quick, add a few more scribbles to create a quick mid tone shading between the darks and light tones O0

Nicely done Vidar, and the speed you're geeting through these is also impressive.

Thank you Nolan, I can see it very clearly now that it lack some mid tone.

And  :thankyou: to all other for kind remarks.

I remember I liked to draw when I was a kid and a youngster, and was a curious if I would feel the same now about 50 years later.
I can definitely say I like it and I am really looking forward to all the possibilities to learn.  I have just started my retirement and this is a very good addition to my other hobbies  :).

A lot of work with this one, and a lot of graphite too
I think the left candlestick  is a little bit to small compared to the right one, but I was  afraid to make it worse if I tried to correct/erase  and  decided  to it leave as it is.

I used most of my time  on the enlarging method, and was not very accurate with the drawing that went rather "fast" (for me  ;D)

Church enlarged from reference picture.

beautiful drawing :heeha: :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
what I do suggest is that you darken all the shadows walls some more to increase the contrast between the sunny walls and the shadow walls, that will give you even more sun in this drawing O0

Thank you very much Nolan!
I will work more on it and give it more contrast as you suggest. :)

two very neat drawings, especially the squirrel, I think you have aced that technique :congrats:

On the horse, just soften the "spots" on the face (between the eye and nose) they have a bit too much contrast
