Todays's sketch was to take only 30 minutes, but I made it too big and it ended up taking all morning.

I know the phone is kinda wonky and the perspective is off, but I had fun doing it.


Again, I learned a lot, so the time was worth it.

Yes, Sally, I don't think it's right either, but it didn't really show on the photo I used.  Just figured I needed one somewhere.

Mea:  Kudos for all the time and effort you are putting into drawing.  We learn something new every drawing.  Good job.

Retirement has taken me from always teaching to always learning!

Looks great Mea :clap: :clap: :clap:

You can still get more lighter values in, especially on the different planes on the base

Thanks, Nolan.  Yup, still a work in progress when it comes to tonal value.

Posted below is a sketch of the tulips as seen in the colored greeting card.

My photo does not show the far greater tonal value in the petals as they are on the paper. 


Oh, and it is completely freehand!!!

In my wildest dreams, I could never have done anything this good three years ago - heck, two years ago!

Comments please.

Mea, your tulips are fabulous. I feel the texture even more in the grey tones.  Beautiful work.   :clap:

Thanks, Nolan.  Wish my darks had come out better in the photo.  You'd be proud of me.

Thanks, Kathy.  I tweaked it a bit more this morning and it looks even better.

Thanks, Kathy and Win. 

Was away for most of the last two days so may have missed postings on someone's work.   Just reviewed the past 100 posts since I left the house yesterday.  If your work would have been post #101, sorry, I missed it, but I'll bet it was good.

While I was killing time over lunch at a restaurant yesterday, I did one of my daily sketches of a TASASCO bottle.  It came out so good, the waitress admired it.  It's hers now.  She seemed quite pleased.
