You've handled the fur in those pastels brilliantly...I want to stroke that wolf!

I have been messing around with non wildlife drawings of late. But yesterday saw a feathered friend develop with the paint. I used decent paper which took water very well. Also slipped in a pair of Phants with graphite

I like the elephants especially. Always nice to see a bit of pencil.

...very adept use of pencil sir.

The Snow Bunting is a lovely wee painting too, nicely drawn.

You have postet a lot of fine work lately, and I especially liked the pastels! The lioness is really beautiful. It's a medium I really think you should explore further.

Ive had little time of late as well becoming a bit despondent about my art. A quickish splash around with the paints was most welcome and a Black Necked Grebe was born A3 size

Very nice Paul.

It's too bad that this forum has become so quiescent. I feel lucky to have been here over the past few years when it was very lively. Though it's easy to get despondent in this field I think that feeling you're part of a group of like-minded, well more or less, people makes you feel much more hopeful about what you're doing.

Hopefully that will return here one day. In the meantime keep working. As I've said before I think you're a natural at this.

I have to agree with the others- this is a great start of the new year! Or new, and new... My absolute favorite is your hawk in watercolors. He is just simply gorgeous!

Takes me back to April when my local paddocks had a bumper crop of these...great bird and excellent painting...my only advice would be darkening up the throat a bit...I tried it crudely on the computer and think it makes it extra redstarty (!)...

I sometimes think that being disappointed a bit is just part of having high ambitions. They just go together.

Looks goot to me and as I've said before I think watercolor comes quite naturally to you. Keep at it!

I blew the dust off my paints and prised the brush out of the packet as I had just over an hour spare tonight. I started simple as its been a poor year for art practice hopefully it will improve
