Sketch Tuesday – something that lives in the forest

I aim to try and follow some of the Harmony Fine Arts Grade 1 course this year (like the idea of using it as an overview hence the earlier grade).  There will be a LOT of tweaking of the art side in the later half of the course as not particularly impressed with it but will try and use it as a template. Will definitely aim to follow the music as this is an area my skills and knowledge are not as good as I would like and I need a bit of hand holding.

Alongside this I hope to make ‘Sketch Tuesday’ from the Harmony blog a regular activity.

This week was the theme of ‘something that lives in the forest’.

As Sam had a new sketching set from The Works we looked at the different pencils and discussed the different hardness of nips and how you might use them for shading.
