Don – Zoom 6/29/2021 My Drawing


Hi Matt,

I had a good start on this during the Zoom class, and thought I should do some more on it.  I watched all of the Forest extended videos to get some more pointers. Some good info in there. Thank you.  One thing I noticed was that you used a lot more white chalk than I thought you would.  Using the fan brush to lighten and smooth the white was something I had not noticed before.  Also you showed how to add more chalk after the fan brushing.  That was a big help. (I hope I remember this.)

In general, I am happy with the way it turned out.  I was able to get a better rendering of the lips after seeing the Forest Videos.  However, I had to do several resizing of the mouth and teeth.   I am still having issue with the nose, but it is getting better.   I am doing better on the horizontal and vertical alignment of things.  In fact, I am starting to see people on the street in vertical and horizontal grid lines.

I continue the battle with the matching shapes, but I think I am getting a little better.  Thank you for all of your really great teaching.   Don’ t blow yourself up this weekend with the 4th of July festivities.
