HI Eileen (again hhehehe)

Each one you do gets better and better. You are beginning to get some shading and tonal values going!!

Great job!!

Thank you, Bob. You are such a sweetie to respond twice. :D

Oh good about the tonal values. It's hard to do, and I have sooooo much trouble making lighter strokes with the straight pin. I'm using my jeweler's magnifier now. This is really a labor intensive medium, yeah? :rolleyes: But I love detail, and this is a medium that allows great detail, so I'll carry on and hope I can do justice to the medium some day. ;)

Thanks Dana. I used a straight pin and a small wire brush on this one.
