~ 4" x 5.5"
I'm not a huge fan of drawing birds, but this guy was pretty cute. I loved working with several of my red/orange colored pencils against the greens. It was also really weird not using much white in a drawing. The little I did use didn't really "pop" like I'd hoped so I might go back over it with acrylic in a couple places for emphasis.

~ 4" x 5.5"
Here is day 2 for Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 challenge. I wanted to say thank you for all the kind comments I got yesterday on my horse sketch. It was very encouraging. I didn't have much time to draw so I got a much smaller piece of paper. I was very frustrated having to work so small with a texture surface. It was not enjoyable. I loved this cute kitty though and I plan to turn him into a card that I will mail to my grandma because she loves white cats.

~ 9" x 9"
Well, I didn't do so well in the September "30 paintings in 30 days" (I only finished 14 paintings), but I am going to try again in January and see if I can at least beat that. I hope to go back and finish those 30 watercolor dogs series at some point as well.
Anyways, this time I decided to pick a toned paper and colored pencils for the challenge and put no limit on subject matter. I've always loved working with colored pencils, but I tend to try to detail too much. I think I've found a way to fix that by using a paper with more tooth to it. So far I am happy with the amount of texture and the way the pencils work on it. Although I am eating through the pencils much faster than I had intended.
