Thanks George.I really enjoy putting colour tones together and was pleased that you noticed and liked that.Thea .
Lovely image Thea. I like the way you have composed the picture and the harmonious colours used to depict the fur and background.
Great picture Thea! The fur has worked well, a good choice to use Inktense pencils. Lovely eyes and expression, though I think he looks rather guilty - probably just dug a hole in the middle of my lawn!
Thank you Tricia and Chris for your kind and useful comments.I totally agree about the whiskers, eventhough they looked black in the photo I should have toned them down and made them finer.Yes I eventually tried my 'lift out' technique to soften it.
Lovely picture, with your trademark 'paint it in and wash it out' technique I think.
Possibly slightly finer whiskers or perhaps not as "black'...?
Beautiful colours on the fur and shadows.
Did you work from a photo?
I like it! You've got the expression just right, - alert, not trusting the viewer.....
