Thank you Vic, Krista, Gail and Amatheya for your kind comments.

Although I much prefer graphite, this cp piece is quite enjoyable for a change.

Nice work Dors, they really are a colourful bird. We have lovely birds here but not as colourful as yours.

Dors said...

Thank you my friends so much for your kind comments. Oh wow Christmas is almost here. We are away for a week over Christmas. I will post the details tomorrow. I will see how I go for finishing the Lorikeets bur I think it will be after Xmas now before I get it finished. I already have a ref and set to go with my next WIP.

Love the intense colors Dors!! Awesome job so far. May I ask how you acheived your background? Almost looks like you used some sort of solvent...it is very nice.

Dors said...

Hi Colette. Thank you for your kind comment.

The BG was just Prismacolor pencil layers and blended and burnished. I didn't use a solvent. the burnishing doesn't help the carpal tunnel but I stop when I get feel pain.
