Sookie belongs to Larry Seiler on Facebook.  Still a puppy but at least twice this size now.  I am enjoying watching the pup grow into an adult.  Photo belongs to Larry and used with permission.The actual drawing is about 5x7 on larger paper.  Colored pencils on the smooth side of watercolor paper.

I have been watching some you tube videos and some live streaming of artists doing colored pencils. Two are from England. Amie Howard and Alice Photis (Fine Art by Alice). I am trying to incorporate some of their ways into mine. And most of all, I have had to slow down. I tend to hurry thru to get done. With these I'm taking it slow and stopping when I get antsy and want to hurry. I really like how these are going. Also trying to start several at once so I can go back and forth.
