I think it's very good Shelley. Lovely colours. :)

It is really quite good, Shelley. You're too hard on yourself.

I know what you mean about all the COLOR. I had decided beforehand to use sketch tonight in charcoal and was overwhelmed when I saw the pictures of all these colorful animals.

I LIKE IT! You CAN do color.........!

Hi Shelly, I like this! What are you talking about? I think you can do color, after you get over being afraid of some little colored sticks... hee-hee I think what would improve it 100% though would be to crop it, it goes and goes, but squared off, it would look really good.

shelley you are to hard on yourself!! Ack and pastels even. Gosh you get points just for getting the dust out on those....

You can do it! LOL (see)

Hey Shelley,
I think you did a great job on this. Maybe its not completed, but hey, what you've got here leaves no doubt in my mind this was the, the, the cockatoo - oops toucan. :D :D :D
Honestly, you did a very good job with the colors. I really like the eye especially.
I had a family thaang tonight so I'll try getting something together for this one over the weekend.

Have a great day! :)

Well of course you can do color -- there's the proof! I think it looks great!

Hey Shelley,

I say the bird is looking straight at ya....
I do feel for you though, I am trying to work up the courage to play around with colours....

I like the fact that you tend to draw a detail of a figure, I love the birdy....

02-16-2002, 01:51 PM
Shelley you have done a great job of depicting the Toucan.
I think you colour choices were execellent.

But only because the Toucan is such a silly bird! :D

This is a very good and colorful closeup. And if you are going to use chalk pastels, get used to the dust. It doesn't get any better or cleaner.

Keep up on the color work! They keep telling me it is worth it. And if you don't quit being so hard on yourself, I am going to charge you royalties. I have the market cornered on self defeatist attitude. :p
