Kathy,

You certainly have learned to use the colored pencils.  Great job.

Beautiful, Kathy.  Please tell..... What pencils and paper are you using.  What size and how long is it taking you to complete a project.

Jill:  I used prismacolor pencils and mytiems paper.  I am not sure how to spell the name of the paper.  Each drawing was an 8 hour class.  It was a lot of fun.  I will only be able to do graphite pencil drawings for about three weeks because I am having cataract surgery on both eyes.  It will be 2 weeks apart.

Kathy,

Hope the cataract surgery goes well.  My husband was thrilled with his.  Could see almost perfectly by the next day.

Bev,

So nice to see you again.  Love the feathered friends you brought with you.  BEAUTIFUL!  The beak on the cardinal is super!

Bev:  Nice work on your birds.  They take a long time to build up the values.  Your chickadee's eye is too symmetrical.  The highlight should be at 10 o'clock.  Love them. Kathy

Nolan: Thank you for your critique.  The Iris is my favorite too.
Patricia: Thank you.
I had my one eye surgery Monday. All went well.  It is really red because of my blood thinners. Kathy
