My next project is a Koala. The reference I am using is an awesome photograph taken by Tony who has very kindly given me permission to use his photo for this drawing.
Thank you Tony, I appreciate your generosity
You can see Tony's wonderful photos on his Flicker site.............. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tctopend/sets/
I will start on the Koala tomorrow.

The finished Hut. A real fun project. I know that Graphite and CP mixed tends to be muddy but where I put color, I kept the graphite to a minimum. The Ink didn't work to well. I will do another project using ink but will do it on watercolor paper and not film. I found that Ink and drafting film are very compatible.
We took this photo 6 yrs ago on a visit to the USA. Hut at Coles Pond. Vermont.
