 :thankyou: Patricia! I'm still as silly as I always was, just silly under my own name now!!! I thought about a Cardinal, but couldn't find a really good reference  photo. I've sketched out a really nice little Robin and a beautiful, colourful Cedar Waxwing. But don't anybody hold their breath, I'm the world's slowest drawer!!!

Oh! Roxy, I am so happy to hear that "Bev is actually our very own Roxy" and I will try and address you with your proper name.  If I may suggest, go onto the website "Paint my Photo" for there are wonderful copyright free photos for you to paint of Cardinals and all kinds of birds and other interesting subjects.  I have pencil coloured a Cardinal, in fact, I put it on our forum so you can have a look at it, the other one I did with w/c.  Anyway, looking forward to seeing your drawings.  Patricia

Nice "canvas"  O0 who knew that mylar would look that good...  I used that stuff for years making nautical charts with ink jet printers.  Is it the translucent white?  It looks clearer than stuff we used, bet it looks great on a light table!

 :thankyou:  Ray. . . you will find this a very interesting ground on which to work. It takes a beating and as long as you don't fold it . . .that is put a crease in it, it will stand up to just about anything, even washing with soap and water!! Some of it is clear which I don't like and some is translucent which is what I am using. Have fun!
 :thankyou: Steven. . .yep, good old translucent Mylar; you used it for years, my engineer hubby used it for years and now it's making it's way into the art world. I'm not the first to draw on the stuff , I saw a blurb on Wet Canvas where a CP artist did a small flower on Mylar. . . then I looked over at the 25 + foot roll of the stuff  we have and said ah ha!! And, you are right. . .it looks great on a light table!!!
 :thankyou:  Maryna. . I'm glad you like my little Chickadee. More to come, but don't hold you breath, I am v-e-r-y slow!!!
