    These are great, Elizabeth. I’ve done the same studies, so I know how challenging drapery is. You definitely seem to understand the construction as well as the light and shadow. I love your technique, too. The only suggestion I might make regarding the last post is that the top edge of the fabric seems too dark or maybe too harsh. If it were a little softer it might read as more rounded.

    I just reviewed your entire thread. Beautiful work!!!

    Wow, you are really good at nailing that light and shadow. Making a difference between your midtones and darktones. Do you have any insights to share that where brought to you through the process?
    All the best,
    Marie

    Hi Marie

    I think at first i just copy whats in front of me, then im careful to follow Iliyas instructions on terminator lines, core, cast shadows and reflected lights. When i look at my work i can see a lot of problems. I do sometimes go back to earlier lectures in the course and just listen to the theory again. Then with each drawing you do you reinforce what you have learnt just that lttle bit more. dont know if that helps. best of luck

    Just remember that the form of the drapery is heavily affected by both gravity and the material itself,
    in  some case the drapery can be pulled by force, like drawing a dude with long cloth and he rose his arm

    which is one kind of force

    like the cloth we hang near  the window, and the cloth we used to wear,

    they are different in nature

    and drapery has different materials lead to different result such as how much and how hard that material is

    So observation is unimaginably important

    even when creating imaginary drapery, we still need to make sense of that cloth, that jacket that shirt that skirt etc

    get reference when creating is important even when it’s not a study

    Thank you for sharing your process. It reminds me to be patient, which indeed is a virtue. I find the hardest part, and usually the part that adds most to the painting, is getting-in-the-zone. I constantly have to remind myself to give the process and my mind time to unfold that by itself and not try to force it like I tend to do.
