This is Bonzo he was drawn with Prismacolor pencils on a coloured mounting board the mounting board has a nice smooth surface that gives a delicate texture to draw on   Ray

Kindest regards

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Fantastic drawing Ray.  The coloured pencils look almost like pastel with the smooth finish which I suppose can be attributed in part, to the mounting board.  I love your drawing of Bonzo and it almost feels as though I can put my hand through the picture and stroke him. Beautifully done, you can be so proud.

Ray,

What a great drawing of Bonzo.

This is so well done.  Look at that shiny nose.  So good.

Another beautiful portrait Ray. I love his eyes. I get that same look in my eyes when I'm tired. Bravo!

That's a very nice drawing, Ray.   :clap: :clap: :clap:


I love his expression too.  It's kind of like he's saying, "Well, are you going to pet me?"  or "Well, isn't it time for a walk?"  :)


The mounting board sounds like a great surface for doing coloured pencil.  It sure worked well for you!
