Well I will be the 1st to post my colour pencil drawing of Val's photo. This was done in my Holcroft sketch diary A4 225gsm with Faber-Castell polychromos. This has stirred up my  RSI trying to block in the water. I have coloured and blended until the paper can't take any more as the layers keep lifting off. Learning to use these pencils. Also the paper was too rough a surface as it was showing up all marks and indentations I didn't want.

Despite the challenges with the paper I think you've done a marvelous job!  O0 Right down to the two cornflakes slowly sinking!!!  :heeha:

There are a pair of these geese that come by the back of the boat every morning and honk and hiss until I come out with a handful for them!  :2funny:

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Teresa, you have done a WONDERFUL job on the goose.  So lovely to see despite the problems with the paper. 




Val, I loved hearing about the pair of geese that come by every morning for their food.  Much like the birds and bunnies that frequent our porch for the handouts we supply for them. I feel so bad for them with all the snow lying around so we clear our decks and put food out for them.  What shocks me is that the bunnies come out to eat in the evenings when it is dark. Didn't realise that they were nocturnal. We live and learn.

This has come out extremely well, Teresa! I expecially like the colourings of the water.
