Down on the farm


Fine posts today. Like them all, this one takes my fancy...I like machines where the working parts with this tractor.

All your postings are great drawings. Simple but with good and enough detail.

Thank you Lew and Richard for your valued comments.

Like this Paul, especially the detail of the working parts. Are you using darker tones on the areas in shadow etc. this really stands out.

Thanks Fiona, I did use a graphite stick for the darker areas. I have a habit of not recording what I use to draw with, I should start doing that.

This is fabulous Paul, I love looking at people’s drawings and tractors in particular.

Thank you Frank, I love drawing them and owls car, trucks and boats. There is something about them that just I just want to draw or paint them.
