Revisited the Lizard


I thought it was time I looked at completing the background of the Lizard.   It always seemed to have that unfinished look.
We are moving into our new home in 2 weeks time YEAH!!!!  We are well on the way with the packing so it should be a breeze on the day we move.  The main area floor tiles will be laid next week, the blinds and Venetians will be installed next week and the carpet laid.  WoooHooo   We are almost there now.
We are so happy with the builders (Masterton Homes)  Great job.  No Stress...  It's all been a wonderful experience.  
Anyway back to our Lizard..   I think I can now call this finished.  I hope to still have time to do another drawing before we move.

This is beautiful, Doreen. I hadn't seen it the firs time you posted it as I assume I hadn't yet found your blog. I think it looks ever so much better with the background filled in. Just lovely work!

I'm excited for you two! Happy moving!

Hi Doreen,
I liked the first one very much but now having seen the before and after this one is even better. The background has added another dimension to drawing.
Excellent work.
Don't you love moving, not.
I genarally find things that have been lost for years.

Hi Dors,

Your lizard is wonderful! The background is beautifully detailed and makes him stand out. Your work is incredible. Good luck with your upcoming move, it sounds like everything is falling into place for you.

Thank you Wendy and Gail for your comment and best wishes.

Wendy.... We will be putting our little Bully on hold until next year. After we have had our trip to the US & UK. We don't want to put our new little Bully into kennels so early.
This will be our last overseas trip.
