My online art students, please ask questions, and I'll strive to assist you to learn, at your pace, through both tutorial demonstration videos and written notes added to these existing pages.
2/circles large and small with some lines accented, (darkened) with a 3B pencil.
3/lines with verticals make a box ... a house. Sketch very lightly until you get the right slant then darken the line.
The straight construction lines help a lot when you are drawing a symmetrical object model whose two sides are alike. These straight lines help you draw the ovals properly.
Some questions to ask when drawing a symmetrical object:
Be sure you really know the shape of the model before you draw a line on your paper. Look carefully to be sure of what you see, then draw it. These are the fundamental steps to making a good drawing.
See how the large shapes were first lightly blocked in, then the contours were sketched, and last lines were straightened and accentuated.
The straight construction lines help a lot when you are drawing the symmetrical object model whose two sides are alike; such as straight lines help you draw the ovals properly.
”Is a top larger than the bottom, or not?”
“Are the sides straight and parallel, or are they slanted?”
“Do the top and bottom lines slant or are they horizontal?”
“Do I see a true circle, or an oval?”
Be sure you really know the shape of the model before you draw a line on your paper. Look carefully, be sure of what you see, then draw it. These are the fundamental steps in making a good drawing.
The straight lines help you draw the shapes that you seem more easily will stop block them in likely.
The final touch darkened some of the contrast lines for interesting accents.
Kick-Ass Women In History Fiction Series
Escapades: A fictional short read loosely based on "Nicchia," Virginia Oldoini, Countess of Castiglione, Napoleon III's favourite, an amazing woman who changed the course of history.
Cozy rating: No violence, mild appropriate to story language, and low heat rating.
These, Kick-Ass women deserved to have their stories told. From Nicchia, in Escapades, who changed the borders of Europe to Rose, in Star Struck, mother and home business gardener who would not give up, and searched Australia's outback for her missing husband.
As for Jane, in Gold, learn of the shipwreck tragedy of the SS. Admella— fall in love with a woman who defied mid-nineteenth-century stereotypes.
Co-written by Ryn Shell as Rose, and Linton the male hero's words adapted from the 1960's love letters sent to Ryn by her to-be-husband Reg Shell. This rural lit novel is a historical mystery and love story. You will be longing with Rose and Lynton for their happy ever after ending from their teenage coming of age with the moon landing, to the loss and a mystery surrounding Skylab's crash to earth over southern Western Australia, not the uneventful event NASA passed it off to be. An unusual and touching Australian story.
While hardly a small town traditional cozy, because the often hilarious action takes place across much of south - south-eastern Australia during 1859, Ryn Shell has focused on fun, friendship, and love in weaving together true stories from Australia's past into exciting historical fiction in the novel Gold
Gold, is a richly drawn, evocative, stand-alone novel.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Mutta's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Something different in the way of romantic historical fiction. This is an adventure through humour and historically tragic events. It is more than historical romance — judge for yourself; Miss Mutta breaks stereotypes.
