Silver Kettle

Do you want some tea? :)
I honestly thought I would not be able to complete this shading exercise for Cindy Wider´s online course! "No way!" I though... But, voilá! Here it is with my best effort! It´s incredible how, during the drawing and shading process, I always doubt myself. But then, I just go ahead with it putting aside all the negative thoughts and I just can´t believe my eyes when I look at the final result! It´s indeed a great feeling when you do create something... I am loving my art learning journey!

Oriental Girl

I am just thrilled with my latest drawing!! I know it is not a master piece but for me it has a special meaning since I have really struggled to be able to draw a more realistic portrait! I know I owe this result to my teacher, Cindy Wider, although this is not an exercise for the art course and I haven´t had yet portraiture, but I have used here some of the lessons taken so far!...
This was done with graphite pencils for this week´s drawing challenge in, and the reference picture was provided by it´s host, An.

Old Hayshed II

A friend of mine just helped me to give a whiter look to the photo I have taken of my exercise! :)
There... doesn´t it look better?
