We are never too old to learn

Thank you for your course. I am enjoying it immensely and learning a lot at the same time.

At 70 I have a way to go, but as they say we are never too old to learn.

Here is a drawing of a treadle sewing machine that I inherited from my mother in law. I found this quite difficult to do but did enjoy the process anyway. For some reason the metal name under the body of the machine caused the most grief.

This one was also not easy. The desk is a very old oak desk with lead and glass doors on the top bookcase section. I tried to indicate the books and the metal work rather than put in too much detail. The wood grain is lovely and I wanted to show this with out the drawing getting too fussy.

The small hand carved round table next to the desk that I thought would be relatively easy turned out to be far from easy. It is also pretty old, I remember it from my earliest memories as a very small child. The problem that I ran into was that to top of the table is warped and bends up. I wanted to show this as it is part of its character. I don’t think I got that right.

    Thanks for the compliments both of you. I have only just got my Internet back after over a month of being with out it hence the delayed thanks.

    Good drawings but remember that vertical lines remain vertical. Make sure you know where your eye level is and where the vanishing points meet. For the “SINGER” machine drawing, i am sure the eye level is not too high but the lines along the side are very parallel. Please try extending the lines.
    For the wardrobe/shelf the vanishing points don’t meet at one point. Please try to extend the lines from the sides including the bottoms.
    Let me know what you find out.

    And for the lamp shade, please try to look at the light source and their shadows. Keep in mind that the light travels in a straight line. For learning shadows, define the light source and draw straight line crossing the top edges of the objects and try to see the object cast shadow.

    I find your drawings interesting. Pretty much what I faced when I went to college except for the fact they never taught perspective. The drawings our class produced were somewhat supprising since no one there knew a thing about perspective.
    I notice that it appears that you layed out your perspective lines but the objects were free handed in rather than using drafting instruments. I think this is great. As a former draftsman prior to college we used drafting tools to achieve hard line, precise drawings. I think there would be a distinct difference in your objects had you used drafting tools to complete the drawings. Nice job.
