The flower is too dark. Didn’t follow the instructions completely to find out the flower was to be done with just a dusting of the graphite/carbon black on a tortilla so went in and drew it, as usual. Then, to make it look better, I needed to add the really dark carbon pencil background.
Oh, well. I’ll do the next one right - and may redo this one later.
I like my little bug, though :). Maybe I should just do little insects!?!
Hope you are having a good December leading up to Christmas and all the presents, family gatherings, etc.
Only you know how the flower was supposed to look. To me, it looks terrific. Any consolation, I don't follow instructions either...
The bug - yes, another cutie! An awesome series, maybe?
And Rhonda, I hope your neck and shoulders are feeling lots better!
It looks like it is lit up in the darkness.
Looks great to me too. I love the beetles and the way you have captured the sheen. I always love your drawings... Best wishes.
Thanks, Chris. You’re right - comparing ourselves to the teacher is a goal but can also keep us from appreciating our own style!
Thanks, PTMan :). I like that description a lot.
Thanks, Lisa. I seem to like beetles and crawly things, too, but like flowers in color :). Only a few more weeks of lessons to go in the course but it’s been well worth the time and effort - and the new stuff learned :). Val is a good teacher and the demo/videos are very well done.
I think Rhonda your flower is perfect next to the dark background. Who says we need rules :)! Hope your December is beginning with lots of blessings. Hugs!
awww what a cute little bug :)
Lovely work Rhonda. Your bug is amazing!
