Thanks for the encouragement Nelson!!! Yes - I'm not quitting until I've gained all that I can. Started therapy again last week and along with my exercises my homework is a new journal drawings, but with my left hand. Assisted of course with the right. Could you imagine! By the end of this trial I'll be able to draw with both hands ... Hmm.
Thanks a lot for your comment on my Different View, I did feel the potted plant could have been a different colour, but I couldn't see what colour. I was told once, never do anything in isolation in art, so I went with a colour already used.. just me being lazy
Wow! Nelson...you should be making and selling quality coloring books...this are the kinds of pictures my 7 yr. old grand daughter and then there are older people like me that still love to color. Your intricate designs are fabulous. I especially like the fairy pictures that you did in color. Thanks for sharing! Jaydee
TY very much for the comment on Dopey the Elephant, I have so many elephants I've painted recently, they seem to by most popular card for swaps!!! I'm going to upload more today since there's a limit! I really like the intracasies in your work, very very detailed :)
The first piture I colored was from a coloring book using crayons. I still love using crayons. I started using colored pencils because of the shading one can do. Go to kaleidoscopiacoloringbooks.com. Kendall has some fantastic coloring books for sale.
