Thanks Anita!

So... you can actually draw? I always love it when people can do that - I am totally incapable of doing it. I mean, I have great ideas and everything, but then something happens between my brain and the paper... Mostly something ugly. :lol:
Cheers,
Ava.

Ah, the fabulous thing about drawing is that it affects how you see.
I now see the path to paper differently than you do: You gaze at the face or the tree or the thing -- it comes in through your eyes and passes through your heart and then through your hand to the paper.

Have you heard, "Anything worth doing is worth doing badly" -- that is, even if you can't do it well, it's a thing worth doing: singing, writing a love letter, dancing, gardening.
Drawing is a thing worth doing badly!

Hi all, chapter 17 Portrait Drawing is uploaded.

I like this chapter a lot -- imo the writing is clear and the insights and advice are excellent.
I hoped to be able to PL today, but alas! 'Tis not to be!

Tomorrow is my off day, so I'll for sure get to it then.

Thanks Anita! I don't think anyone mentioned it after your previous chapter, btw, but you also should include the running time of each section when you post the link. :) Looking forward to listening!

Hi there and welcome!

It's good that you know audacity, but please do our 1 minute test anyway. We need specific settings and want to make sure they are correct. Won't take you a minute to record and post over in Listeners Wanted. :D

I have pencilled you in for section 16. Good choice, relatively short ;-) Have fun!
Cheers,
Ava.

Ch. 8 notes:

1:40-1:45 repeat of "as in the accompanying sketch."
40:55-41:02 repeat of "The eyelashes do not count for much in drawing..."

This is now PL ok!

Running time after corrections is 42:28. (Remember to include this information in the future for each section you submit. :) )
