Thank you for this wonderful Drawing Course!

Thank you for this wonderful Drawing Course!

Hello Vladimir and Natalie! My name is Malvina James, I am originally from Vladivostok, Russia. I moved to Canada many years ago. I started my art education taking online courses.

Collage by Malvina James

Collage by Malvina James

This is my first attempt in a field of collages.:) It was a lot of fun to do it! I have 500 rubles (year 1912); I didn’t dare to cut it, but instead copied, enlarged and cut the image of a woman.

Portraits by Johann Krammer

There was time to draw in my vacation. After a short time, I recognized, that it was a big advantage, that my family did not want to be my models the whole time. So I had to speed up my sketchings and to focus on the essential points. There is a lot of fun to sketch with limited time!

Drawing of a windmill

Drawing of a windmill

Drawing by Ronnie Rayner Larter

This drawing is of a windmill a few miles from my home. I completed a few days ago using the hatching technique. To create a sense of restfulness I used horizontal hatching for all buildings, trees and sky, but for the windmill I used cross-hatching, which I felt gave it a sense of solidity.
