That is looking great. I will post mine
Yes finish it! It is looking pretty good. I understand about rushing! Matt has certainly taught me to slow down
Here is my progress. I do need to make some of the darks darker. Also, I make a pretty major mistake - see if you can spot! I think it is very obvious. I was rushing to catch up. Haste makes waste
@Migster I think yours are looking great! Please do finish them. I totally understand your frustration, though. I was terribly frustrated with mine last night. Then I remembered I really need to stop comparing my work to Matt’s. This is the first pen and ink I’ve done. I also think I’m using too large of a pen. Since yours is digital, I know it’s a whole different ballgame, but you’re doing great! I’m learning a ton which I can use in the future.
Hi June!! I like that you’ve gone lighter with your values. You can always darken them. I think I’m using too large of a pen tip. I’ll try to remember that for future reference. I don’t think I see your mistake. I’ll go over it again. Hasn’t it been fun watching this drawing develop!? Can’t wait to finish it.
Also, I’m looking at oil paper. Amazon has pads of 9x 12. I’m going to wait til next week to order just in case Ashley goes larger. Blick has single sheets in larger sizes which could be cut to size. Maybe I should just order that. Then I’d have options! LOL
Your Air Junes are looking great. Let’s head for the finish line!!
did you check out my gettin sketchy? It makes me laugh!
Look for the line on the shoe on the left (next to the right shoe) that should be there! I drew it thinking it was my line for the right shoe but alas, it is not!
June, I just looked and left a comment. You’re so brave!!! .
AHA!!! I see that line now. And you know what they say about making marks with ink! Permanent! it always ticks me off when I do something like that.
June, could you turn that line into a shoe lace coming from between the shoes? Just a thought, since there are two lace ends sticking out from there.
I had that thought too! I will probably do something like that! Thanks
I am way late to the show here, or should I say show and tell. My shoes need a new name brand - ha-ha, but they surely are not Jordans.
Everyone’s looks great. I’m so impressed on how everyone is doing in this class!
I am Looking forward to the oil paint lessons. I had already invested a while back in the water mixable oils, one tube at a time, and have watched all of the live lessons regarding working with oils.
I have always used acrylics before, so this may be a real challenge. Maybe I’ll do both, oils and oil pastels.
Thanks for keeping these threads open!
I have never used oil paints so went back and watched Ashleys live lesson of the still life on oil painting. It was before I joined. Now I am looking forward to learning oils under his guidance.
Teri, your Jordans look awesome! Thanks for posting them.
Hmmmm. Water soluble oils. I’d forgotten about that option. Now I’m sorely tempted to check them out.
I don’t know where you shop for art supplies. I do all mine online due to Lyme disease and not being able to tolerate stimulation in large noisy places or in the car.
Blick art materials have many brands of water mixable oils and mediums if you are interested.
How is the winter storm treating you? We have had weather in the 70’s. So strange is the weather these days.
Teri - your shoes are looking great!
I have thought about the water based oil paints but to be honest, I really don’t enjoy painting! So rather than frustrate myself with painting, I am focusing on drawing with colored pencils and pastels. I did order some of the oil paper and will paint it with the black acrylic (I can handle that much painting ) and try the live lesson with Ashley. I am a nothing ventured, nothing gained, kind of gal. As evident from my eraser face. Haha.
Thanks, Teri. I’m looking into maybe getting a small set. I need to order whatever I’m going to get soon so it’ll get here. There’s an awesome art store in Houston, but I only go there if I’m going to Houston for something else. I hate driving in the city. Horrendous. So many angry drivers in one place.
I think winter is over here. We’ve been in 70’s and 80’s all week. I’m just hoping we don’t have the same kind of heat we had last year. I was so depressed by the time it rained and cooled off in the fall.
Looking forward to whatever Ashley has in store for us!!!
June, I keep vacillating between oil pastels and maybe trying a small set of water mixable oils. I’m not fond of painting either, but I’ve never tried oils, so who knows. Decisions, decisions.
I understand, since I have Lyme, I cannot drive but even riding in the car gets my neurological system out of sorts. So, for me, online shopping is the way and easier.
If you do decide to shop at Blick’s, you can also get replacement glass and backing to make the pallet. I bought 2 5 x 7 replacements, and it comes with backing in a nice foam type of case. I turned the paper in it over, taped the glass to the backing and popped it right back into the Styrofoam. Works great, I have been using it with my acrylics and cleans up better than anything else I’ve used to date. I just use a pallet knife.
I usually get the orders from Blick’s with 4 - 5 days.
We have also been in the 70’s here, we have really had no winter at all, and we are in the mountains where I live here in Asheville NC.
I too am looking forward to whatever Ashley has planned!
See you Wednesday to finish up our sneakers!!
I think that your eraser face turned out great. It encouraged me to try it, sometime soon. I too, (not so much as before since can’t try a whole lot) was a go for it kind of girl!!
