Thank you very much for your comments, Win, Patricia, Mea, Val, Jay and Steve!
Win, I wanted my lion to be a fierce one, so I am glad its eyes are expressive :)
Mea, I believe the carving is done in plaster, like most of the architectural decorations from that period. I wanted to give it a rougher texture, like that of the stone. Also, the paper helped too in this case.

Thank you very much for your kind words, Annie and Danielle!
I've framed the last two drawings to put on display. Please excuse the poor arrangement, but I thought it would be nice to share this with you. :)

This time I wanted to try grey paper. I planned to do this drawing for quite a while, so here it is the result, the ''Flower of Hurezi''. It is inspired from an architectural detail I've seen on Hurezi monastery, the best preserved example of what is known as Brâncovenesc style or Romanian Renaissance.
For this one I've used graphite, white and black pencils.
As usual, please let me know what you think and if there are any improvements I can make.

Rebeca,

It looks nice on the grey paper.  I find these drawings quite fascinating since they come with a history.

Love the dimension you've acquired in your newest. The white & black graphite on the grey paper works treat!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

As spring has come, I wanted to do something that would remind us of this season. This drawing was inspired by a beautiful architectural detail I've seen above a window. I've titled it ''Flora'', from the Roman goddess of flowers and spring.
As usual, constructive criticism and advice would be greatly appreciated.  :thankyou:
