 :flowers: :flowers: :flowers: Great drawing as usual, Patricia!  I love those graceful long-necked creatures!


I can't decide what I like better now, drawing or painting!  I still remember fondly the wonderful time we had drawing dogs! The last thing I did though was try out pen and ink which I did post.

Liz, it is so lovely hearing from you and  :thankyou:  for your lovely comments. 


Yes, I too, will never forget the fun time we had and how we all enjoyed doing the dog course.  We all seemed to be so focused on what we were doing. It was an exciting time for sure and I would recommend everyone to take the course for it was a good foundation too. 


I understand the dilemma about painting or drawing and how I look at it is that the one strengthens the other and vice versa.  They go hand in glove kind of thing. Besides, it makes a nice change to have a break from the one and have the other one to fall back on.  Just my thinking.


Hope we can see some more of your work.

 :) You're right of course.  A friend gave me 200 plus pieces of cardboard which I gesso and paint on.  I am trying water color techniques color mixing, glazing etc. using acrylic paints, doing vignettes mostly.  Nothing looking good enough to post except my Eastern Gate ink drawing last week.
