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. ..plus 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.
