    My developing sketchbook

    Hello everyone,

    I'm a newcomer to the art scene so any feedback would be most appreciated. I've neglected sketching for a few decades so back at it with a vengeance. Self taught pencil and pastel sketches are my ' specialty ' if I have to be pigeon holed. Have never attempted painting but hopefully in due time.

    My original sketchbook seems to have disappeared (possibly at my own doing) so I will repost old drawings. This is my latest work in progress. Still working on shading skills. Thanks

    Thanks. Think that was my favourite one to do also. I felt like throwing it out at times during the process out of frustration but I'm learning that if you step away from it for a while things never look so bad the next day. I like your work as well!

    I've finally finished this drawing I did from a photograph. I took a few liberties here and there with shading and other things. Can you please let me know if something doesn't make sense. ThanksName:  IMG_9171.JPG

    I've finally finished this drawing from a photo I have. I took some liberties with shading and other things so please let me know if something visually doesn't make sense. Thanks

    Sorry...I'm still learning how to add things to the thread (multiple entries in error) & how to load the appropriate size of drawing. Not too computer literate at times! Hoping this is a better size of drawing.Name:  IMG_3043.jpg

    Here is my next go at it. I'm not great at drawing people so this is my attempt at an old photo I have of the Queen and Prince Phillip....if you can even tell it's them....not sure (haha)

    Thanks very much. I was hesitant to post this latest drawing because the people look too ghoulish to me. Their faces are supposed to be softer looking but I guess it just takes more practice.

    I've finished a pencil landscape. Another weakness of mine is trees and bushes so thought I'd take a crack at it.Name:  IMG_3356.JPG

    thanks so much GigiCee. I appreciate your feedback. The landscape comes across a little too green for my liking. In reality it's more of a toned down green/yellow. Downloading camera shots tends to play with the colours slightly as we all know. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your work!

    Finished the background. This is from a reference photo of Sitting Bull & Buffalo Bill. They are having their photo taken in front of a fake backdrop. May explain why this background doesn't look too realistic.Name:  IMG_3419.jpg
