  • Hi Doug, thank you for your comments and I will join you for the webinar. I sent this on the art feed because I couldn’t no longer ´see ´ the drawing and was stuck..

  • Thank you! It helps me seeing the tones right beside each other. I turn the paper with each layer I do. Will keep working on smooth layers. Thanks for your help.

  • Hi Chris! All your experimentation and perseverance is paying off! That you can see the clear progression of tones is wonderful! I think #8 could be a little darker and #9 even more. Have you tried turning your paper when you add different layers? It can help achieve better coverage. Keep up the good work!

  • Welcome back Rita! I like the movement of this piece! A couple of things to consider. I would make the bottom end of the main stem continue down a little further so it does not line up with the bottom of the seed head to it’s right. I would clean up the top edge of the stem that connects to that seed head. It is not as crisp as the rest of the d…[Read more]

  • Hi Sheila- yes! The pomegranate bud in the lower left helped a lot! With the lone white flower in the middle bottom of the right page, could it have a little bud or flower go behind it? Maybe attached to the little white bud to the flower’s right. Something simple, but I think it needs to have a relationship with something.

  • Hi Helene! This is wonderful. The view of the tulip on the right is hard to do, but wow, you nailed it! It is sharp and crisp and it does not want me to look anywhere else. The tulip on the left looks more muted so the balance of the composition is off for me. I would also take another look at the toning on the leaves. You have a nice dark shadow…[Read more]

  • Latest version. Really appreciate the suggestions and open to more, of course. Traveling for three days, so I’ll see what I come across.

  • Yes. Today I started making the 5 a bit darker. I do these each day, and think I’m seeing more. I’m quite enjoying this. I think the dark sepia pencil doesn’t get to quite a full black, so that may have shifted me off a bit. Thank you for the feedback, and I’ll post more soon!

  • Hi Sheila- it is better Sheila! Maybe consider a small shot of red on the lower left? Or eliminate the largest pomegranate flower – it seems so dominate.

  • This is a great study page Faye with great observations!

  • Hi Chris- this is fun to see you use the different colors! As I mentioned on your previous post, your #5 on some of the lines could be darker.

  • Hi Chris- welcome to the ArtFeed! Great job with the tone scales. Beautiful smooth toning! As the #5 is halfway, I think your 5 should be a little darker – more like your #6. Then of course, you will have to alter some of the other squares.

  • Hmm, maybe bottom right …??

  • I love the gentle curve of your center tulip. This is my favorite stage of the tulip flower, as the weather becomes warmer and the petals open up the blooms remind me of poppies! I’m inspired by your logo on the bottom right and the red/yellow color pop.
