The art history class was early art history from pre-historic art to baroque. I asked many questions over the course of the class. My instructor, Melissa Jones, took the time to answer all my questions and we had some great conversations.
The drawing instructor, Elizabeth LeGrone, always offered constructive feedback to improve our drawings. The focus of the drawing class was to draw what we see with a wide value scale with either pencil or charcoal.
My next class is on color. It should be very interesting.

Here is the rough sketch of my final project for my drawing class. Obviously, it needs work, but I think I got a pretty good start on it considering I got sick several times while trying to draw it. I'll use sighting to fix the proportions and add the appropriate shading and textures.

Do you like my charcoal drawing of the kiwis?
I have been working on PTSD Central. As I get the time, I am going to be adding as many articles about posttraumatic stress disorder, anxiety, and phobias to that website as possible. So, stay tuned for that! Check it out often if it is a subject of interest to you.

This is a charcoal drawing I did for my drawing class. What I liked was the complex shadow cast by the textured, fluted bowl. For those who draw still lifes, I would recommend the trick I learned in my perspective drawing class and place white paper under the still life arrangement. It makes it very easy to see the shadows.
Well, I have more drawing and writing to do...
