My latest drawing

Well, my drawing is not yet done (now begins the fine tuning), but it's done enough to show you. Plus we are moving on to our watercolor drawing and most of us will continue to work on our graphite pieces on the side.
It's a slow going process, that's for sure, but also very satisfying. Now I have to push my values and as I do that, everything seems to be changing in other places. I could call it done, but I want to learn as much as I can while in this class and detailed drawings are one of my professor's specialties!
Already it's way beyond what I thought I could ever do, so I am beyond pleased! I'll be sure to show you how it changes over the next few weeks.

For the watercolor drawing I'll be using the same still life - that old radio and I have bonded... Tonight I'm going in to do a watercolor sketch of it before I make any marks on the "real" paper!

Wishing you a great evening and a good night!!
