Thanks Cynthia. Some, very few but some people just speak to you. I think she did that.

I've enjoyed perusing your artwork here.  When did you create that style/faces? I find them very interesting

Bless you and thanks Cindy - I think I learned more about pastels on this one portrait of the Lemur than any other I have ever done - and yes its a Ring Tailed.  Well done for recognising!! xx

 Hi Cynthia, I hope you are feeling more settled in now here, lovely to view your paintings, and think you can either reply to other Artists on their features or on your own page, when in doubt I think the Administrator will assist any queries. Have a nice weekend!   Angela

Hi Cynthia -I'd like to send you a message, but I think you'd have to accept my friend request.

 Its so nice to see and follow the dialogue of your paintings as it really is so profound and simply beautiful to view!  Nice to re-unite with you once again on this Artist Site. Thankyou for your comments and feedback on some of my older paintings too!  Love the Kanja interpretations by way of these illustrations painted so eloquently!  Angela Susan

Hi Cynthia, I used yupo for the dragonfly & some of my koi & sunflower paintings. Yupo is such an exciting substrait  I started using it a little over a year ago & LOVE it. Thanks for liking my stuff :-)

Thanks so much for all the nice comments on my work. I really appreciate it. It has been a tough year & I haven't done as much art as I would like. Next year has to be better. I do so love your work!!

Hi Cynthia,

Thanks for your comments. I used sakura pigma micron pens on my drawings and then added small amounts of shading with a graphite pencil. I can see what you mean about the ink running with the paint, but I think that in your pictures it has created a nice effect and goes well with your loose drawing style. I have combined the pens with paint occasionally. I found that they didn't run with oil paints. I haven't tried watercolor. I found that they sometimes ran with acrylics if the ink hadn't had enough time to dry. I could use ink on top of dry acrylic with no problem. sometimes I color the pictures with colored pencil. Mostly I have just used pen and pencil. (I like plain black and white)  I've also done some pictures with pastels, but I don't combine those with ink (It makes a mess of the pens!)
