Hi peeps. Well I wimped out but my wife wanted to get involved so I showed her the pics for the drawing night and she choose the two Macaws. She did this drawing freehand in about an hour and a half. I AM IMPRESSED!!! She does some great colored work. Drawn on colored paper (8 1/2" X 11") (framed in photoimpact) using soft chalk pastel and a few colored conte pencils. She did such a GREAT job I just had to show it off to you all. She would love some input on this drawing. :)

PS: I will be posting another chalk pastel drawing she did of her mom's dog.

There is some nice texture work going on here! Good control of the medium. Nice job, Artdudette!

Cool Artdude, I can't decide which I more jealous of, having a wife that draws, or having a wife that draws soooo well? Tell her to sign up and join us... she is always welcome...

Bobby :D

I am impressed too !!!

Lovely soft feathery texture, and I like the hint of the background colour in the birds themselves.

Glad you could join us Leslie. :)

That is almost enough to make me check my pastels and brushes at the door. Great job.
