Weekly thread 4th -10th August.

August, the last month of Summer, another week another weekly thread....Summer with luscious fruits, raspberries, plums, peaches, nectarines, , gardens full of ripe tomatoes and colourful flowers......meadows of buttercups and wild flowers, butterflies fluttering by, bees humming and wasps stinging...sea, sand, sun colourful people in colourful dress........ enough to titilate your imagination? ....... let's see some sunny colourful Summery paintings....have fun......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Most of you know now what this thread is all about but for the benefit of those who are visiting for the first time:-

The objective is to paint or sketch as many times as you like during the week, but within a given time limit, i.e:-

25-30 minutes, 40-45 minutes, and 60 minutes. Small sizes, 8x10, 9x12..or whatever size you feel is right for you.

Time yourself, using a timer or alarm clock and as soon as the timer goes off......stop, and post it here...

The idea behind the set times is so that you learn eye and hand co-ordination, be able to paint what you see without being bogged down by detail and therefore improving your skills.

So come on in whether you are a newbie, a professional or somewhere in between....... all are welcomed here, no critiques unless you specifically want them. It's great fun so do join in.

Here's the link to last weeks thread, some beautiful ones here for you to see and give you an idea about what this thread is all about :-

graphite and pastel study

Not working today yoo hoo,but found myself a model to work from,so i did this this morning just on the hour,tried to be quick and loose with the graphite and whacked on some pastel quickly in order to qualify as a pastel drawing,as it's really sunny i think i'll take her out to the garden and do some miore sketches rfrom different angles .

Sorry Mo,i cant tell a lie,even from a small boy my mum would look me in the eye and she would know my model is only 4ins tall and 2 ins wide had to carry her out to the garden by the time i got set up i was dripping all over the place so i brought everything back in,maybe later lol.




there you go my model hehe,i won her in a golf tournament back in 86,never thought of drawing her before,at least it's not a photo

LOLOL! Guilli... well it's 3D... as good as in my book.... good for you anyway... seeing the 'model'.. you have done really well... I'm still dripping here, I've had three showers today, but each time I shower I start dripping again...

Greg... I thought a plethora was something you strummed a guitar with ....joking apart ... keep watching this space, I may surprise you yet..... Hmmm where's your's today? I was expecting the office stapler at least.

Tick - splendid as usual. You really handle all those greens wonderfully!!!

Dyin - great dog sketches. It is difficult when they move but very dynamic!!

Guilliame - lovely African Statue!! One of the first acrylic paintings I ever made a few years ago was of one of a pair of 4foot African statues that I have!!

Here's my sketch. Its from a foto of my 8-year old son when he was 2 years old. This is quite small 6X9ins and in pastel pencil. I don't like working small but this small pad is ok with the pencils....
