Art Lessons Online

Hi there I haven’t posted anything about my online art lessons for a few weeks. I have been distracted with a healthy lifestyle program I am doing.

We all need balance in our lives. I am needing to make sure there is a balance in my life.

Yesterday and again this morning I got stuck into my art work.

Week 7 was learning to sketch penguins . Sorry the photo is a bit faint. this is a copy from the tutor, I didn’t sketch this one. Sorry about the poor faint photo.

Weeks 8,9,10 was learning about shading, layering, blending. I didn’t practice much which I clearly need to.

I did find a couple of sketches and shading that I did back in February 2019.

Weeks 11 and 12 were about colouring the penguins that we sketched in week 7. My sketches weren’t the best, proportions need improving. I attempted shading, layering and blending. My practice drawings are not finished yet.

Below I will include a photo of the subject picture, that was the tutors magical work….so good.

My attempt isn’t too bad, I reckon they look like penguins

I am tempted to start again , use good sketch paper, get the proportions right,plus the colours.

The pencils I am using are Prismacolour soft core. I didn’t have a good colourless blending pencil so I have ordered some that should arrive within two weeks.

  2. That’s wonderful that you do this art lessons online, Ally! I love your penguins, they look so sweet, especially the mum and baby penguin. As to the subject of paper: I can wholly recommend getting good sketching paper, it really makes a big difference, like when you need to erase parts again and again because you can’t get it right. πŸ˜‚

    1. Thankyou Sarah for your kind comments and encouragement. I have purchased some good sketching paper, and some prismacolour pencils. Lately I have been distracted, not much art done because I have been focusing on a healthy lifestyle program πŸ™‚

      1. That’s okay, you can always get back to it when you feel like it – the paper will keep fresh. πŸ˜‰ A healthy lifestyle program is very time consuming but so worth the effort. Keep at it!
