Oh my word tiny those are amazing! I'm not sure if this picture would be good for you to draw but I have been dying to see someone try this with water colors! If not its fine :).

I love how the shepherd turned out! And I think the blue's the perfect touch. Really shows how glossy black his coat is.
Nicely done!

goofing around last night with the pencils. I wasnt' trying for a masterpiece. this one I loved the colors, but since I don't have the ability to add white with these pencils, I couldnt' get the real milky look of the snowy day.

and this is another photo I liked, so asked the owner if I could paint it. I think I could do much better in either straight pencil or my usual, ink.

I love the feel of the 45 minute quick sketch, I had to keep looking at the inked Shepherd and struggled to see the blue, it really does look like shiny black to me.

The last pic, looks a touch more roman nosed in your pic than in the photo.

Anytime one of my pics calls to you you have an open invite to take up the tools of your trade and experiment

thank you Denny. YOu actually have some great photos and as you know, I did the dogs in the oriental style. but if you have one that is just full of character, shoot me one. I need to get better with color. The nose on the bay totally sucks. the whole thing is not so good. Whatever . . .
