Lovely tigers everyone. I'm almost embarrassed to put this moonlit guy on here. This is the first pastel that I may keep. There are mistakes, but I like it.

Good for you to tame the tiger, Carol.

It certainly looks like a challenging piece.  Except for the brightness of the nose, I think you've done wonderfully.

Carol, you do me proud :clap: :clap: :clap:
 When I look back at how you were struggling and then turn my eyes to this one all I can say is :yippee: :yippee: Good for you for persevering O0

Oh! another thing - 99.9% of drawings and paintings have some sort of mistakes in them. Why? They are not photographs and because we are human beings.

 :thankyou: Mea   :thankyou: Natalie  and  :thankyou: Jill

A big happy thank you to Dennis. I didn't realize my paper was a problem for me. I was using watercolor paper and copy paper and nothing was right. This pastel paper seemed to be okay with my drawings. Goes to show you I only need to hear something a hundred times!!!   ;)
