Here is my entry.  This dog spoke to me and I had to try it even though it is beyondmy knowledge to draw.   :thankyou:  Thanks for the encouragement to have another go at it.  I learned so much taking on this challenge.

Woof, woof, Mysti.  I think you did a good job on the dog.

It's fun watching your progress.

 :thankyou: Thank you, Mez!  The color pencils are a bit different different to work with from the graphite as they are waxy rather than powdery, but a lot of fun in their own way.  I think you will enjoy them once you start with them.   :yippee:     

 :thankyou: Thank you, mea!  I am having fun progressing.  I really appreciate your encouragement.   :1hug:

 :thankyou: Thank you, Patricia!  I am glad you pushed me to do better.  I cannot touch the fantastic drawing Teresa did, but I learned a lot and had fun creating it.

 :thankyou: Thank you, Mary Lou! I spent a lot of time especially on his mouth.  All the detail was intriguing.

 :thankyou:  Thank you, Harald!

 :thankyou: Maria  aand MaryLou, some times they  work out and sometimes they don't

Mysti your drawing is great   :clap: basic coloured pencils are not easy.
 If you look at the challenge where we all did hydrangeas you can see the results some people got with polychromo colour pencils.

Mez you did an excellent drawing  :clap:
