Other attempt

Don't run if you can't walk.

Sometimes I have chose something absolutely hard to draw for me. It is an example. I have tried to draw a bird with pastel medium thus it was a great fail.
I have draw some birds in other articles and  I thought I knew the general shape of birds. However it wasn't right. I will draw more birds to catch their shapes and be able to depict without seeing. It will be a good challenge.

I want to depict wonderful views through landscapes. There are a lot elements on it. I will begin with the trees. The way is to understand the structure and the essence  of them. I have done these exercises to get it. The last one is this. I have to do more exercises.

I notice that I am not capable to draw faces in different sizes and position. I will practise many times this exercises to improve this ability. I have practise a lot regular head. I know the theory about relationships between different elements of the head. However, I don't master this type of drawing. The solution actually is practise again and again just so get it.

Still life 4: I am stuck

At the end I didn't find the solution. I have understood  shapes and light but I haven't dipicted it. Next time I will do more thumbnails. I have use white colour because it was totally imposible to show differents values with my sticks.I have only one of it. I think there is another way to paint this complex form. I have tryed to transform into simple structure but I notice i don't have enough technique. It will be a new challenge. I want to paint these roses well. I going to do it.

Still life 3

In this exercise I have tryed to work with light and shadow. Their shapes are made well as you can see. I know I have to enhance the volume through the light. I have used a little bit better color. I am at the beginning. The background is not intencional. I took a red stick and used it. I used contrast colour to identify color in the colour wheel.

Pears in watercolour

I have tried to use different tones to create certain volume. I have copied pears from photographies. I have began with yellow and then I chose a variety of green. Sometimes I have mixed it with a little bit of blue to get a dark colour. I have a lot of fun.

Red pepper

It is a new attept to practise with soft pastels and it has ended up a little better. I notice some errors. Cast shadow is wrong. Maybe it is too long. High light is made of white colour but it is horrible set it. When it was been maden it looked like a brillant final with a simple touch in white. Moreover, at the end it has been a mistake.The edge could be more lineal. My work is a little bit dirty in red. It could be better a colored matbto use soft pastels. Although I grabbed a white sheet because I hadn't a accuracy matboard.
I have fun a lot. I have relaized I am adquire asome skill in diferents medium. I have many goals such as perspective, proportions, shadows, tones. However, I will get them just with my daily effort.
