WIP Kangaroo Finished.


Posted by PicasaKangaroo on Arches smooth 300gsm  paper 30 x 20cm.


I really enjoy drawing these Kangaroos as they feel part of  the family.  They visit so often now.
Only 10 more sleeps before we are up up and away on our US/Uk/China trip.
I may be able to get one more drawing in before we leave.  I don't think I will have much drawing time while away so I will post photos and keep you updated as to where we are.  We will have the net book with us so I will try and keep up with reading and commenting on blogs as much as I can .

Hi, we have returned from our trip and had a great time. You must be very excited about your trip, it sounds like a wonderful adventure. Your kangeroo is great so much character. I loved the kangeroo video you sent out. They really are something to see and to think it is a common sight for you is really something.

This is just gorgeous work! I love the way you draw hair. So soft and fluffy looking.

I hope you have a lovely time on your trip! We will be in China as well in the next few weeks. It's exciting! :)

He looks gorgeous, Dors.
He seems to me to be listening, waiting for someone to get too close, then he'll disappear. Great feeling to get in you work!

Enjoy your holiday, I hope its so brilliant you forget to use your net book! xx

Dors said...

Hope so Jan... I did try that once before but I need a steady hand with the pencil and sometimes it can be a little bumpy. I will let you know if I managed to draw a little.
