Hi Guys, I haven't looked in here for a couple of years and thought about givng September a try.

But what's going on with all the personal attacks by Kicker;  I didn't think we did that kind of stuff here.

If we are going to have people like that copping attitudes, it will be the death of the group.

Nealey, I'm so sorry I didn't get to draw or paint anything from your lovely pictures. Thanks so much for hosting the August forum.

Kicker, you are correct there are no rules about how you edit and if you wish to add a picture to your comment you may. However, there are rules of curtesy and respect to members. This is a friendly sight open to all levels of art for beginners as well as the more experienced artist to show their art  in a friendly and encouraging environment.  Please refrain from any more personal attacks and discurtesy in future. 

 

 

Jen C & C's always welcome

Nealy stop kicking yourself over your WC.  Looks pretty good to me.  I think that if you would darken the forground so that it looks like you are coming out the shadows of a wooded area you would like it more.  Your coming along fine.

How does Moses make tea??  Hebrews it.

Geri, thanks for your support of my WIP.  Yesterday I started fresh because I couldn't lift up the muddy shadow.  It's all good - good practice.

Thank you all who participated in the August Challenge.  Alex thanks for popping in!  Miss you!

I'm happier with this one.

Nealy ,you captured an amazing range of texture with your soluble graphite..... Quite impressive.
I've never worked with that medium.

Hal, Thank you for commenting on my drawing - wash.  I accidently bought the water soluble pencil last year and I really like using it!  Happy accident.  It's just drawing, but with more blending capabilities.

Comments and critiques are welcome.

Nealey, you have captured a wonderful atmosphere with this drawing, it has such a soft dreamy quality. I liked this reference photo and your drawing has made it come to life.

Nealey, your WC is beautiful and I really don't see anything wrong with it. You do have a strong affinity to pencils though and your drawing is superb. 

Sarah, sorry is missed your waterfall. Very nicely done with a good sense of moving water.

did anyone else have trouble getting into the site yesterday?

For several hours last evening I was unable to get in.  The message was that the site was down/.

Jen & Bonnie ~ Thanks for your comments on the Southern Home.  Glad I started this out on wc paper.  I was just going to do a value wash as Sarah suggested.....then I "got in the zone" and took it much further.  It's amazing how the type of paper used changes the work.

Comments and critiques are welcome.
