  • Hi, Per Doug’s recommendation, I will try to join the next webinar as I feel like these aren’t quite right. I look forward to hearing any suggestions – Thank you!

  • This is gorgeous Margaret! You truly captured the colors and textures so well! The one thing I am thinking is that the base of the middle pod (where the three pods meet) could use a little more dark toning. Also along the left edge of the middle pod. It seems like the shadow cast by the left pod onto the middle pod would be more evident and it…[Read more]

  • Great job Patricia! The form of the branch is much stronger now. A lot of us get nervous about going too dark, but including darks in the appropriate places can make a big impact and make subjects look more realistic – especially when you are establishing a subject’s form. One of the great things about working with color pencils is that if you g…[Read more]

  • Thank you, Doug, for your feedback. Here’s a drawing with more toning. It seems to me that the real drawing is much darker than it appears here. But I am amazed at how even what looks quite dark can go even darker.

  • Hi Patricia- I want to check out that workshop too! Everybody’s drawings have been so good! Yours included! Maybe a little wider shadow on the leaf would give it more dimension. Wonderful details!

  • Great subject Patricia and you did a wonderful job! I agree with you about the need of more toning on the bottom. After taking a break from it you may want to go back and add darker toning on the bottom edge transitioning lighter as it nears the highlight. The dark toning on the top of the right side of the branch is a little too dark. You could…[Read more]

  • Thank you all! The pink banana is an ornamental plant in the tropics. It only gets 6’-8’ tall. The fruit is edible, but it is full of tiny, hard, black seeds which makes it undesirable to eat at least for humans. I started this drawing last year in Kauai and it will be my submission for this years Florilegium.

  • A friendly troll, maybe. Representing the life on the ground. ??

  • This is breathtaking! The green leaves have great energy and lightness against the more substantial and solid feel of the flower. Really beautiful.

  • This piece of wood had so much texture and gradations of color.I feel iike it needs more shadowing on the bottom, but had to walk away before I overdid it!

  • I wasn’t able to participate in the last workshop with Wendy, but her tips were inspiring. I found the leaf the most difficult to get off the paper.

  • Hi Becky- sorry for the confusion! This truly is a beautiful piece! The colors and the details are amazing! I don’t know if you can attend February’s webinar. Even if you can’t you could view it at a later date. Pam is good at visually showing any suggestions we might have. It would probably be easier to see what I am referencing instead of me tr…[Read more]
