Question Re: Basic 102 - Class 14 - Landscape - Putting it all Together

Hello everyone!

Diane,
I have a question/request:
Wouldn't it be good to post a larger version of your completed drawing?
Or to put a link where we could find it?

I always can learn a lot simply from looking at your drawing, but it is a bit small and I couldn't enlarge it very much.

**falling on my "knees" ** Diane, do you think it would be possible?

Have a nice week all!

Martina,

We are restricted on the size of the image to post at WC. But here is a downloadable .pdf file of the tutorial. This is located on my website in the tutorial section.

Re: Basic 102 - Class 14 - Landscape - Putting it all Together

Good morning everyone!

Diane,

I must tell you this:
In another drawing-class we had to draw a self-portrait. I'm sure it was a good exercise but it was unbelievable hard for me to do an the likeness was great - to whom ever but not to me!

The day after finishing this exercise I went over to our landscape drawing - and I can't describe the feeling! Everything was so easy, so clear described, it was fun fun fun! (As the Beach Boys said once...)

Diane, you really are a wonderful teacher!

Here is it - so far. Suggestions are welcome.

I then use a 4B chisel edge .2 mm clutch pencil and burnish a layer over the cliff. Blu-tak is used to lift out highlights where the sun is hitting the surface

I found it in the pdf-file too. I don't know if it is possible to change it or to make a little note at the end of the pdf-file.

Martina - Thank you for your comments regarding my lessons. I am so happy they have been helpful!!!

Your drawing is MARVELOUS!!!! You are doing a fantastic job!!!!

I have only one minor suggestion...take a closer look at the rocks in the foreground and take a peak back at lesson on rocks. Soften the vertical lines and use values to represent those angles instead.

This is so lovely....I can't wait to see it finished.

Diane

PS...I have sent the fix to my webmaster (Mike Sibley) to make the correction to the tutorial on-line as well as the pdf file.

Yes, I will do so. It is such a fun to draw this picture, I can't stop all the time but have to - my family wants to eat. Totally waste......

Edit:
After reading the rock-tutorial a question came into my "stoned" brain:

Why do you use a 4H clutch pencil (I know the lead is much bigger)? I only have a 4H mech. and wooden pencil.
Is it because you can fill empty spaces faster or has it another use?

Martina - Wooden pencils will work just fine. I just don't like to sharpen them!!! I do like how the clutch pencils lead is just so creamy. Sparrowhawk (Ken Brown) describes them as: "they go on as smooth as butter".

Re: Basic 102 - Class 14 - Landscape - Putting it all Together

Had a busy week, and somehow I haven't been able to start this one yet. After all the time you put in and guiding us through the last series of classes, I think we really owe you a "grand finale" drawing. And the review and additional information you gave here really helps to bring it together.
Thank you Diane, I will be getting to it. Do you recommend we work on the same picture for this one, or does it matter?

Frieda - I think it would be good to see you try this landscape. It really covers everything that we have been studying in the classes so well. And even though it might look daunting, I think you will be surprised as how simple and quick it comes together!

Diane

Hi Frieda!
I was a bit afraid of trying this landscape too. But it is 1999 % correct what Diane said.
The first step is the hardest - sitting in front of the white virgin paper. But after the first stroke it was such a fun.

I look forward to your drawing!
