Hi Ray, you do such exquisite work with color pencils!   :clap: :clap: :clap: Now I know why you commented on my use of them in my dog drawings!  I am a total novice with them, however!


You are right about the convenience of using color pencils or graphite ones.  My problem is having to stop to sharpen  them or the pencil point breaking on me!


Keep up the great drawings!   O0

I've really enjoyed reading through this thread!  I've been missing so much!!!


 :congrats: Ray, your coloured pencil work is fantastic!!!  I especially like the dog on the black paper but they're all done to perfection.


I should read up on how to use them correctly, haven't had time to do that, but I can see by your work that you have the know-how and the results speak for themselves.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thank you all for the nice comments. I think I might try a portrait next. The flowers were difficult.
