Thanks Patricia, and Natalie.  I'm sitting here chuckling.  Each of the lemurs have a different expressions.  Patricia's says "I'm wearing a coat 'cause it's cold here on Canada."  Natalie's asks  "are you serious?"  And mine says "this old women is nuts!"

 :thankyou:  Dennis for your comments but yes, it is the camera that lightened up the colour and the pupil on the one eye for in real life, it is as dark as the other eye.  I think my settings on the camera are all wrong and I will need to have a lesson on it.    :confused:   I am getting a bit old for all this modern technology ... when I left the work force we never even had computers!!!

Cyril,

You really do well with pen and ink.   The fur, especially around his eyes is really good.

Well have finished my Lemur was going well until the watercolour started to run a bit ,I don't know if I spilt some water or it was to do with the quality of the paper not really made for w/c.

Nicely done Helen. If you hadn't mentioned it....might not have noticed the tiny infringement of the w/c. The eyes look fantastic.  O0 :clap: :clap: :clap:
