cake - oil paints
second attempt at oil paints... difficult but this one is a bit better.
also... you should know, I only have 6 colours and none of them are black, so there is some epic colour mixing going on here.

life drawing class - Charcoal

I decided it was time to get some lessons! I saw an ad in the art store (which I have been frequenting recently) for a life drawing class in the Glasgow Botanical gardens on Tuesdays. So I went along to check it out. It was interesting, but I definitely felt that I was running out of time at the end of most of th poses. next week I need to bring bigger paper though.

charcoal and chalk
This is the largest drawing I've done so far, usually I work on A4 ish sized paper but today I picked up an A3 pad of coloured paper. It was quite a difficult subject but I think it turned out quite nicely.

coffee pot - charcoal and chalk on tinted paper.

I like how this one turned out. I think that over the last 70 days I've started to see better, which seems to be one of the big hurdles to becoming a better artist.
