Thank you Tony. I used 20 year old Wh Smith blendable for the base layer then koh i noor polycolour and finally staedtler lumocolor for the white highlights

A lovely painting, and such a lovely expression in the eyes.

Thanks Carolyn.

Thank you very much Linda for another kind comment.

Beautifully painted Carolyn. Such an irresistibley cute expression. I'm sure your friend's Mum will be delighted.

Margaret, thank you for the lovely comment. I haven't looked at Amie Howard's work but I certainly will now!

Thank you for your kind comment David.
