Weekly Drawing Thread Aug 14 - 21 2006

This week's was one of my favourite subjects - the human eye.

I've always loved drawing eyes so I was dead chuffed when that came up as the challenge.

Really pleased with the result this week. Took me about 2 hours in pencil.

Weekly Drawing Thread Aug 7-13th 2006

Every week on Wet Canvas a challenge is set to draw or sketch a reference photo.

Sometimes they are ok, sometimes they are really challenging considering that I don't generally practice a lot. But they are a great way to try things you wouldn't normally do and to develop your skills.

This was the first challenge I entered. Was reasonably pleased with the outcome.



It was the first time I'd done a still life style drawing since school and it took me a while to get the hang of it, but generally I was pretty pleased.

The acorns themselves need a bit more work, but the leaves aren't too bad.
