Really nice Doreen. Like the personality displayed here. Never have seen one but have actually painted them befor and think they are a great subject.

Dors said...

Thank you Maria and Gary. I am not even sure what kind of bird it is. I will have to ask in the forum.

Another great piece! I wonder if the 300 gm paper by Arches is similar to the 300 lb paper they sell here in the states. I bet it is, and they just found a way to do the conversion so it fits.

I was just at Karen Hull's blog. Do you two live near each other by chance?

Wow, Doreen, I haven't been visiting for a while and I do apologise! I LOVE this piece, the tonality is great and the pose has a sympathetic aura about it (must be the soft eyes). Great job! I love your bull terrier too... my gosh, you've been busy!

Dors said...

Thank you Colette for your kind words. always great to see you pop in.
At the moment I am drawing a spider. I wonder how the comments will go.. I know some people just don't like spiders. and this one is macro.
