Kathy...thanks for the comments....I agree the plight of the big cats in many cases is a sad one. This issue of habitat loss, poaching, and lack of food  all create a huge issue for many of our wild creatures today. The genetic strains get so weakened with cross breeding that they not longer possess the storng genetic code of their ancestors from days gone by. A sad story for sure. 

Thanks again. John

Hi Kathy, thank you for the like on my cherries cp drawing. That one was fun to do. Thanks for sharing about where you get your subjects. I also have found just a few copyright free photos of people that I've drawn but there doesn't seem to be many good ones, but every once in a while I find some that are really good quality that I can use. I've only done a few people portraits but love to do animal portraits the most.

Hi Kathy, I'd love to see you draw a water lily in colored pencil. I think that would be really beautiful. The Water Lily painting I did is an older one. I have it hanging in my home now. I rarely paint anymore, but am now only doing colored pencil or pastel. Where do you get your subjects for all your portraits? I love your portrait work the most. It is absolutely amazing and inspiring.

Hi Kathy I did wheee with a acrylic paints  I flip between watercolour and acrylic . I only did one oil painting when I first started painting two and a half years ago and as I'm a messy painter so got in a stated and the smell and long drying time put me of...the only reason I can see for recording the whole of an event is doing for someone who to sick to attention. I can't see the point otherwise in going to a live event and the viewing it through a screen

Hi Kathy as I was born in 1958 I had the great freedom  that most of us had at that time , even my children born in the 1980's had a great deal of freedom which came to an abrupt halt after we learned pedophiles living opposite us and another group around the bend to us

With social media and the way the TV news is run now I think parents are a lot more aware of the risks now and sadly it has restricted the movement of the children of today although the risks haven't changed much . I'm afraid in the UK to much  energy has been put into rehabilitation of these people and it seems to have been put above the safety of the children

Hiya Kathy,

Re; cougars.........mountain bikers being eaten by mountain lions in Marin County isn't that common, but it has happened. The common consensus is that they're attracted by the rapid movements and the unusual shape of a mountain biker, because they tend to leave hikers alone.

thanks Kathy,                                                                                                                         in answer to your questions, almost all my work is done in graphite because, for me, it is quicker than any other medium (except perhaps acrylics) and, at my age, that is very important. Had I come to  art proper a few years before 2006 which is when I retired at 69 years of age, then I have no doubt that I could have donated more of my time to other mediums and would, I think, probably become more proficient, either in coloured pencils or inks. The rose was done in coloured ink and I enjoyed the result but it took me many hours compared to my two hour, on average, works in graphite. My other favourite is the grey ranges of Prismacolor, cool, warm, and French grey, and I have done many works using just those greys, great for human portraits and animals alike. Thanks again and I hope I have answered your queries. Have a good weekend      Ed
