Susanna Frost - - #38618

I thought the workshop was excellent. I really enjoyed the workshop as the subject matter was quite complicated and therefore a challenge. The subject was broken down into small chunks making it easier to tackle and giving a very pleasing result.

Response from Art By Purnima:

Well done Susanna , you managed to capture the fine detail on this complex Landscape.
Keep up the brilliant work.

I joined this class as a complete beginner. As a complete novice drawing is quite a challenged. I am finding that I am gaining in confidence even if the task seems daunting. It is broken down and we are taken through the task step by step and I have managed to complete and managed to draw an apple in graphite pencil that looked like an apple and 3 dimensional image. I would highly recommend this course to anyone really wanting from the very basics onwards.

I think the course is excellent and being pared down into manageable pieces,it’s much easier to progress and learn different technique. I’ve already taken to try and draw a subject rather than trace from an image.
Looking forward to more lessons.

I have found this a very interesting course. Although some of the tasks look quite challenging Purnima breaks them into small achievable steps and the end results are impressive. It has been good exploring different media and papers . I feel much more confident now to tackle other pictures.

I enjoyed our lesson today, but I'm not too happy with my birds colours, so I am taking Purnima's advice and doing a colour swatch patch first.

Personally speaking, I found the lesson most enlightening on all the different ways of shading and various other methods such as the sandpapering of the tips of the pencils.

I have learnt how to make my picture look more 3 dimensional by directing the strokes and varying the shades of the crayons to produce a life-like looking picture.
