TeresaM,

Love the kitty.  Cute little nose.  Great hair, white whiskers.  Nice background.

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Excellent Theresa.  I was looking all over for your drawing and eventually found it.  Good job. Don't know anything about scratchboard but it looks interesting and as I said, your "scaredy cat" was done so well.

 :heeha:   Brilliant Teresa!!!  :congrats:   Just love his startled little face. Have you looked at the scratchboard classes here? They are excellent!  :clap: :clap: :clap:

I'm still working on how to get a good water effect....  :crazy2:   Great fun though. I hope you'll be doing more.
Cheers, Val

Woa!  Love the expression of your cat's face.  Happy you like scratchboard.
Cheers, Annie

fantastic start, but the cat looks happy to me and not scared, which is a good thing :clap: :clap: :clap:
now you can have a go at the scratchboard classes as well seeing as you have the equipment O0

 :thankyou: Thank you everyone for your encouragement it means alot and i will try to do more but finding  the time with everything else that's going on in my life is not easy.

 Every day i keep seeing things or pictures i want to paint etc.

As i keep saying to my husband lately as he has been going through some stressful decisions withhis father, one day at a time.
