ah, its still in draft form! i will do one i promise, had 2 goes at sketching but been at work today and was out last evening and this evening.

at first i couldnt work out why bampy drew those circles but then i realised ~ its a great tip i think, big help!

27 Feb, 2013

 

It's very good :o) Well done ! There's no telling what we can do until we try.
I said I'd do one. Better get a move on ...

27 Feb, 2013

 

you star Grandmage, they look just like a species narcissus & I love your wobbly 'corona' ;-))
This goes straight onto the art room wall. You have raised the bar. Next weeks art lesson we're painting the Cisteen Chapel - - - LOL :-O

27 Feb, 2013

 

10 out of 10 Gill . . . hard to believe it's your first try!

28 Feb, 2013

 

bampy ~ you made me laugh ~ the cisteen chapel!!!! painted by Goy ~ now that would be worth visiting! can you just imagine it!

maybe not so many cherubs???

28 Feb, 2013

 

well done Grandmage :o)

28 Feb, 2013

 

Sticki....I just copied Bampy's tuition, no drafts for me, 1st attempt and I'm quite pleased. Hywel...your turn next it is great fun.
Bampy...you leave my wobbly corona out of it . LOL. Thank you for my praise though :)
Thank you kindly Sheila & San. you are both artists, I am delighted with your comments.
Sticki not sure I could draw a cherub, have seen the real cisteen chapel too, it's amazing.
No drawing for me now had a cortisone injection today for trigger thumb......very very painful. :(

28 Feb, 2013

 

poor you Grandmage having cortisone injection, my friend has had them and tells me so painfull, hope it calms down soon for you :) x

28 Feb, 2013

 

Nasty, no not your drawing lol the injections!! not bad at all for a first attempt.......

28 Feb, 2013

 

I have to say GM you are amazing ~ that drawing is much harder than i thought ~ and you did it first time ~ you are very good.

no cherub drawings for me!

im hoping GM you are now resting ~ that injection doesnt sound nice at all, but i hope it does some good

28 Feb, 2013

 

Lol....have to go che k out the blog now! Well done GM!

28 Feb, 2013

 

Having to type with my left hand and feeling very sorry for myself, I am in agony. Thanks San & Dd...blush blush.....and Sticki, I have always wanted to draw flowers but never had the chance to have a go! Maybe I should try again. and I am resting, boy was that injection painfull and had no local for it either. Lou...c'mon you have a go too and thanks :)

28 Feb, 2013

 

How is your arm today GM?

i really think that sketch is very good, im hoping for a few more tips from bampy so i can try to draw a different type of flower? i thought the circle thing works so well ~ never would have thought to do that.

1 Mar, 2013

 

Me too Sticki, brilliant idea, maybe Bampy will do a whole blog on drawing flowers. :) Think I only did well because of those brilliant circles.
My thumb is throbbing and very sore, I am hoping it will recover and improve :( Thanks for asking :)

1 Mar, 2013

 

i hope so too ~ that you very soon recover and improve and that bampy will do more instructions!

all the best

great first try, GM! I have no artistic talent, so the two occasion I have managed to draw something decent I've been very proud of myself.

I can see great pictures in my mind, but halfway down my arm there's a short-circuit, and my hand never gets the messages that my brain is trying to give it.

It's mostly practice, trial and error; I tend to give up too soon and so never get past the "error"! I've got about six sketch pads, tins of drawing pencils, pots of water colours ... and never do anything with them, in case I mess up. Of course I will at first, that's the point of practicing.

Keep going with it, you've got talent if you can do that first time!

I'll have to find Bampy's blog, I can't believe I missed it ...

4 Mar, 2013

 

Fran, you are so kind, thank you for your nice comment, I will have another go and yes I have all the gear like you gathering dust in the cupboard!!

6 Mar, 2013

 

bit of incentive: shall we both have a go and promise to post something by the end of March??

lol I'll show you mine if you'll show me yours ...

6 Mar, 2013

 

Lol Fran.......might take me a little longer BUT will have another go!!! Thanks.

Hi Grandmage .. Well done on your artwork :o)

7 Mar, 2013

 

Hi TT. think it needs tweeking, but for a 1st. it's not too bad. Many thanks. x

7 Mar, 2013

 

:o) x

Nobody would ever think that was a first attempt. Must check out Bampy's blog.

8 Jun, 2013

 

as someone who can't draw a full stop without it ending up upside-down, I'm deeply awed at artistic talent. Bampy could run classes! lol and so could GM, if this is a "first try"

8 Jun, 2013

 

You two must try it Fran & Tuesday......honestly, I wish I could draw and this was truly a 1st. try.

10 Jun, 2013

 

sometimes I can get into that part of my brain that can draw, GM. but I don't know how I do that; wish I did, I'd go there more often! I can see lovely pictures in my mind, but somewhere about halfway down my arm there's a short-circuit, the message never gets to my hand.

10 Jun, 2013

 

LOL Fran......keep trying maybe!! :)

11 Jun, 2013

 

practice is the great thing - well, it is in all things, I suppose. I tend to get discouraged too easily, "oh, I'll never do it" and give up too soon.
