I can't help it. Every time I look at this I think of a raw turkey ready to be stuck in the oven. I have been meaning to try again, but then I look at this in despair. Maybe it is switching to a t shirt instead of using a man's handkerchief like the thumbnails we did in class. ( link to thumbnails )
At any rate, my new pencils are on order and I am hoping they will come before my Monday colored drawing class and I can make a better French Gray. Yup ... when in doubt, blame the tools!
Fun email today from weeklyartlesson.com --- Lillian Kennedy explained the origin of the term thumbnail and says somebody someplace used to draw his ideas on his thumbnail. With my fading vision, I am afraid that is an impossibility, I have trouble enough just seeing my thumbnail to clip the nail but it was a fascinating thought.
