Thank you Cinder eve. Your avatar would be a lovely subject to paint.

I bought some pencils today, graphite , and i want to try them. REcently, my back has been troubling me, so cannot sit and paint hour after hour anymore.

I wish I could do my artwork simply sitting, I have to have the paper on the floor and I'm on all fours leaning on my elbows. Can't draw any other way! So when I go on for an hour my back and legs are so stiff
Also, I love the girl riding bareback. It's a really nice photo. Can I ask why you changed the colour of her top?

To ride or not to ride? ... What a stupid question!!

I liked that photo , too. I don't know why I changed the color. I guess I thought some red would be nice. An old art instructor said every painting looks better with a tiny dot of red in it somewhere, no matter what (unless it's ALL black and white)

I really ought to redo that one.

These are lovely Tiny, I've said it before, but I just love your sense of looseness in your work, while also capturing the necessary detail. I could never work in ink or watercolour, I'm too tight :S

I love your paintings tiny (I'm sure I've said that somewhere before lol) I agree with the looseness - maybe that's why I'm frightened to try paints? I don't know.. I'll just keep watching yours until I get brave lol
