Here is a place to show pencil sketching colored water color or just pencil. I have been playing around with them some but I am really at a loss. I have been studying with Darrel Tank. He has a five pencil method and is a great teacher. I got the first five tutorials on line. I am slowly learning a little. Need more time to study methods. shirleyt

great such fun. My daughter Sandy and I are going on a trip next week to Arkansas. I am going to try to sketch some water falls and sites I see. I have misplaced my box of chalks. I wanted to try them there. I will take lots of digital pics to play with later. shirleyt

My first sketches of my hubby. I do this for therapy. I think I am doing worse. I post this so we can see if I can improve. I think I need to learn landscapes first they seem to be easier. shirleyt

Shirley,
Do you have a link to Darrell Tanks online lessons?
I could use some pointers.

Just google darrel tank. then look for five pencil method. He has u tube videos and invites you to send your e mail and he will send you a series of tutorials. Just what I needed to start from nothing learning. You may be more advanced. I am sure he sends so many and then to continue you can take classes from him. I am not that far yet. shirleyt

When I was young I sketched all the time.
I need the tutorials to get back in the swing.
I'll google him.

Here is a new sketch of PP. I think it looks exactly like him just before he got really ill. I want to do this so bad. I would love to do a portrait. I know I have a lot of studying to do. But I have the time to do it. Wish me luck.

I like your sketch.
You are getting there.
My sweet DM took lessons from the parks dept in Charlotte.
It would be great to find a place where an instructor can tell you exactly
what you are doing right and wrong.

Taggets I know I have a long way to go but it is a lot of fun. I would rather try and fail than not try at all. I just need to start at the beginning of my lesson books not try to do the hardest lessons first with no training. lol But then I always did think backwards. It gives me a lot of peace to try to draw his wonderful face. I got the love in his eyes right didn't I. I was happy when Sandy said oh mom that is Dad. I will keep trying. I have to learn to mix colors. I tried chalk drawing yesterday. I like acrylics much better. I have oils and oil pastels but I need to replenish my acrylics. I hesitate to try the oils. I need to fix my room into a studio first so I can just walk away whenever I want. shirleyt

Yes, you did get the love in his eyes.
In fact you are very close to having him perfect.
I have a problem working from the last lesson to the first also.
I think a 'studio' is a great idea.
Have you ever shopped with Blick Art on line?
Sometimes I get good deals there and sometimes not.

No I have only the basic materials from a Hobby Lobby in town and books from Books a Million. I have researched on line and got the tutorials from Tank. He is good his art looks like a black and white photograph. I have not studied them as well as I would like to. I think I am improving. I need to do all the exercises from the beginning.. Did you get the horrible rain storms. It is beautiful here. Freezing at night and 55 in the day. Lots of things are budding out and getting caught by the cold temps. It is has really been weird for a long time. We had two snow days this year. I remember when Dad used to plant potatoes on Feb 6 every year and have potatoes and snap beans and Ham for Easter. Farmers do not even break ground until March now. Unreal. Oh and we had watermelon for July4. shirley

HI Shirley

Thanks for starting this cubit. Once in awhile I go back to drawing. I think if I had encouragement and some serious suggestions I might actually learn to draw! Smiling

This is a sketch I did from an old photo with a wacom tablet. Practice is all it was really.

Wow that's pretty cool!

What exactly is a wacom tablet? I assume it is connected to your computer?

Thanks for sharing Smiling

Thanks! I haven't used it in a while. It's a computer drawing tablet and software for digital drawing. My DH ran out of ideas one Xmas. Smiling I'm not very good with technical computer stuff but managed to use it some. Here's the info http://www.wacom.com/index2.php?gclid=CPS3_r2jr6ACFSpiswodPD...

A pencil is much easier but the possibilities are endless with the tablet.
