Dear Dennis;

This was fun to do but, the shadows kept playing tricks on me.  The far right
tips/bits through me off.  I finally just darken them in.   Also, I couldn't get the
left eye figured out.  All in all: if one doesn't look too hard it's "just OK".

Have a look:

Here is my version.   :thankyou: Dennis for this class I liked the technique.   Any body ever have the nib  spitting at the end of a flic, I tried many extra fine and they spit. i even have a line through the bottom wing while cross hatching.  Oh well I guess practice will make it better.

Once again the only time I have for these classes is in the back of a room listening to very boring bankers meetings. I love my cell phone. The paper I use is cheap cartridge style paper that I take from the nearest copy machine and a point 005micron. When I get home I usually try to doctor up the drawing with mixed results.  This attempt was so miserable I bought some low budget gouache to see what could be done.  Here goes my Doodle!

You did a beautiful job on this butterfly and sunflower.

Do you mind if I print it and color it like we have been talking about doing - like it was a page in a coloring book?

Should be fun, but I wouldl have to improvise on the butterfly colors.

Elize,

Dennis gave me his okay to post my colored pencil coloring of your beautiful pen and ink drawing.  Thanks, Dennis.

I did not know what the butterfly's real coloring was so I choose purple, the complementary color for the yellow flower.


Thanks for letting me make a coloring book page out of your drawing.  I had fun doing it.

Anyone have some pointers for me in case I decide to buy a coloring book?

Wow Mea, you've done a great job!  In South Africa colouring books for adults are very popular.  There is a great variety for anyone's taste.  You can also look on websites like Pinterest - there is a lot of pictures you can download.  Have fun.   My next challenge is going to be the European Bee-eater in pastels and then I am struggling with the portrait in pencils (hair). 

Have fun!
