Drawing Chronicles 2

Well after five weeks of sporadic drawing classes (I started in March) I really don't have much to show...have spent a lot of time learning theory, doing little exercises (how many circles can one draw?) and one "still life" that was so so...
But last week I did this which I thought was not too bad! It is actually a cup and saucer but I told my instructor if she wanted to see me again she would NOT make me draw the handle (LOL that would have put the kibosh on my drawing career).... She believes I've "got" the basics and next week we are supposed to start on something that I will enjoy drawing  (TBD). It has been fun - I am her only student Monday nights at the moment so get as much attention as I need. She likes to play my kind of music Clannad and Loreena McKennitt in the background - which is hilarious as we are right next to a Tae Kwon Do class so you regulary hear "hiyah" followed by load thumps over the music..
Anyway I actually have learned quite a few things so it has not been wasted on me - and I've signed up for 5 more classes! Jewels

  1. jewels, I think your cup is great. I really like all the shading! You are doing good. I wish I could sign up for 5 more weeks of the art class I was taking, but alas, it is over for now. I also think you are brave to try to do something difficult like this... it is hard to go out of your comfort zone. hip hip hooray for you! It is good and definitely not a waste! xo
