    Shading and texture are coming more easily - though I always feel I am drawing with lines that are too dark.  I need to "lighten up!"  Also, proportion seems to be getting better.  I find gesture drawing with moving objects really difficult.  I captured a gesture of the pintail from the video and then went back and refined it with the video paused.  It was great practice.

    I'm having so much fun with this - and I see so many ways to use comparison studies.  I began with a comparison of two oak leaves.  Honestly, I'd never really thought much about the fact that there are so many different kinds of oak trees.  To start, I randomly picked two different leaves and used them for my first comparison study.  This made me curious to know more about the trees in my area - and I've been learning more about them each day.

    I definitely want to continue practicing capturing light/dark and dimension.  I have an easier time with this when I am drawing one object, as opposed to trying to represent a landscape outside.  Practice will help!Apple and Pepper

    Drawing from the photo made me really pay attention to small details.  It was challenging to get the proportions right - but fun to try.  Thank goodness for erasers!  :)IMG_5852

    I had fun with this exercise - it forced me to take my time and look at the shapes in relation/proportion to each other - rather than thinking about the whole subject.  It came out better than I thought it would! IMG_5851
