Thank you so much Kathy. You are a sweetie!   :flowers:

There is so much that could be improved here, but I'm looking at it as part of my learning curve and have put it in my portfolio book as a reference.
Cheers, Val

 :-*   Thanks whole bunches Mea! If he hadn't fluffed up at this point....next step was curlers and a blow dryer!

I'm going to keep working with the pan pastel, but I think I'll try to find some good quality sticks as well. The background gave me the most trouble.
Cheers, Val
