Think this is one of my fav of your work Cher, it has a style different from the rest, and seems more complete! what kind of coloured pencil are you using, what make?

Aww Thanks Paul! :D

That's funny you should say "more complete"... I think this was the longest I worked on a drawing, up to that time, and it's definitely one of my favorites too. :dance:

My family and friends have given me gifts of many different brands, besides the one's I've purchased. I have  Prismacolors, Polychromos, Faber Castels, Derwent, Prang and believe it or not even Crayola. :nod:

Wow! you got a proper art shop going on there..you can't never have to many pencils... my fav I used were Polychromos, Faber Castels... I too started off with a 7 colour set (one british pound)  ;-) could have been Crayola..but thet are long gone now!

You've reminded me that I need to upload the rest of my drawings/paintings up here... so I'll be doing that tomorrow.. so thanks for that..nice chatting...
