Re: Casual Artwork Thread

Thank you all for the encouragement, I really appreciate it. Here is day two working on my Cardinal. Had a few issues with trying to control the paint, especially on the tail. However overall I'm happy with the results so far, still have much to do on it. Hopefully I will finish it next week.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

OK guys/gals, my illustration course at the City of Bath College concludes next week with a presentation, and I've got a wad of work in a folder and 18 A4 sized (mostly) coloured illustrations in a sketchbook, with a couple of final polished works. My final work is supposed to be a book cover for Lewis Carol's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

I finished my Cardinal, there is a ton of things I would do differently but overall I'm very happy.

That's a great-looking cardinal, Tom. Very realistic. That's some nice work you've done!

Thanks, I appreciate that... It has been a long time since I painted anything and taking these lessons are great. It allows me to get out of the house and makes me do something creative.

Here is what I'm working on for next class, this is my pencil drawing of some tulips.

Re: Casual Artwork Thread

The day before last Friday I did the second part of a Royal West Art Academy course that involves drawing things outdoors and while I enjoyed it, and produced pleasing work I don't normally do, I found the ridiculous £90 fee extortionate (art supplies can sometimes be ruinously expensive as well).
