I lost a couple of days, drawing this lovey girl. Thank goodness I found those pencils in the attic, when searching for something else ๐Ÿ˜‚

She is gorgeous and this is a fabulous drawing. Well done. It's amassing what you find in your attic. I am in the middle of clearing mine. Who knows what I'll find. Keep up the good work. Being creative is so good for our wellbeing while providing a lot of of pleasure and satisfaction.


We needed to declutter, looking for a particular object. Itโ€™s nice to reminisce on easier times. After reading my school reports, all with positive comments on my art, I decided that, while at home, shielding and feeling sorry for myself, I would pick up my pencils, (new ones, my husband had bought for me) to make the most of the time I had at home.

So far itโ€™s been the a God send. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Wow and wow again, thatโ€™s so beautiful

Iโ€™m not sure what pencils you have, some are softer than others. When you start researching Coloured pencils and the types of paper, well, it becomes quite complicated and also a matter of preference too. I have found, if they are quite soft, mine are aqua pencils, try to regulate the pressure. It will take more layers of colour to get the colour youโ€™re hoping to achieve but itโ€™s worth it. You can do fine detail a sharp pencil, on the eyes etc. I have to admit, the cheaper option isnโ€™t as enjoyable, the colour isnโ€™t the same. I think you get what you pay for.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing your creations ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thank you. I find the end result so satisfying, especially if I leave the picture for a few minutes and then come back to it. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I am thinking of it, purely because I love it so much. Even my tapering of meds is going much better ๐Ÿ˜Š

That's really good news. Keep up the good work. x

Just make sure you havenโ€™t got any jobs to do before you sit down and start drawing. Then your mind will be clear to enjoy creating ๐Ÿ˜Š

Have fun ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Youโ€™re welcome. Iโ€™m glad it gives everyone some pleasure ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Wonderful Whatawonderfullife! Serendipity indeed to have found those pencils. That's a highly skilled study of a lovely dog!
