I love my Faber castell Pitt pastels, Mea!  You can order from open stock from Jerrysartarama.  You could purchase the colors you want or get a small set and add to it, which is what I did.

Hello all, had a bit of a problem posting this morning.  :banghead:   Nolan fixed it!  :hammer:     :smitten:

Hopefully there are some eagle eyes out there. I'm not seeing my values well today so am looking for some sage advice here.  ;) I am resonably happy with the first two sails, the third is giving me no end of grief!  :crazy2: I can't discern if I have lifted enough to get the proper shaping on that sail. Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

Cheers, Val

 :D OOH! Your sails are looking good, Val. Thanks for posting this.  I'm just about done with the sails but know I will want to do a lot of adjusting yet. I was going to wait to do this lesson until I had a little more experience but wanted to play with the rest of you  ::) :clap: :D

Val, I think your drawing so far looks very professional.  Can't wait to see it finished.


 :thankyou:  Danielle for your sweet comment.


Kathy, I am excited to read that you are joining in the fun for that is how you get experience. Looking forward to seeing your drawing.

Ok then, I'll leave that as is and continue on. I can come back to it another day.

Many thanks for your encouragements. I'm really looking forward to having a go at the water!  :heeha:       I will finish the boat first...  >:D     :promise:

So glad you decided to join in on this one Kathy, now I know we are kindred spirits....you can't resist either!!!  :2funny:

Cheers, Val

Val,

Your billowing looks really nice, but the first two sails seem to have a hard line at the bottom of each sail that looks too dark and outlined on my computer screen.  I'm not talking about the wooden thingie (Jib boom??)

Nice work, KathyS.

Nice shine on the water.

Probably need more shadow under the boat to keep it in the water. 

Wow, you are just eating this art up!!  Love your enthusiasm.

Thanks Mea, perhaps I've made too much of the curl at the bottom of the sail. I'll make note to sort that out once all the sails are in.  O0
