My Attempt at drawing the berries. It looked fine on paper but now that I've stepped back, I see I wasn't dark enough in most spots and too light in others. I guess that's what practice is for though.  :P

 :clap:  :clap: :clap: Hello Voulost. I think your berries turned out very nice. Yes, some darker shading would add contrast but they are lovely as they are too.  O0

Welcome to Paintbasket.  You are off to a good start.  The Let's Draw course will make a big difference in short time.

Yes, glad you noticed that you need to have a range of darks and lights.

Our motto is "Don't be afraid of the darks."


A day without art is like a day without sunshine.

 :bigwelcome:   Hi Voulost!  :wave:   You've done very well with the berries, I see you have started the same as I did....too light on the values. You'll get that sorted soon enough I've no doubt.  O0 It took me a while to sort out where and when to change up pencils and pressures but trust me if I worked it out anyone can.  ;) ;D   Off to a great start, look forward to seeing you progress.  :clap:
Cheers, Val
