Beautiful picture, Dorothy - so skilfully done, and I like the angle...

What a sweetie, such character!

Lovely Dorothy - what an expression he has!

You do so well using coloured pencils Dorothy. Have never tried this medium although have just bought some pencils. May give it a go. GreT job of Jack - he looks like a lovely dog.

Soft coloured pencils are the best I have found. Give it a go Sharon. You might get hooked like me.
