Kay, this is graceful and lovely! Chickadees are one of my favorite birds...so petite and sweet. You captured their beauty so well in this painting.

That looks just like Tom! Fabulous vignette figure work!

Thank you both for participating.

Re: FEBRUARY Monthly Challenge ~ Images

Thanks Kay.
I so appreciate input and any suggestions which will enable me to improve my art. Constructive criticism is welcomed. This is a lifelong journey of patience, practice and persistence. It is also incredible fun.

Had to edit this. I went to your web site. Respect!!

Thanks
John

Re: FEBRUARY Monthly Challenge ~cowboy

Here is a cowboy I drew first with ink and then used the watercolor for contrast and shadows

Hi dreenkolor, and welcome to the Southwest/Western Art forum! You've done a wonderful job with this portrait. It feels warm and soft and full of life. Well done!

Hi John, and welcome! This painting is so lovely. It feels full of textures and color, so that my eyes move all around the composition. You captured the essence of the scene beautifully!

Hi Larry. This turned out so well! I really like the colors you've used, as they feel rugged and timeless. Excellent work!
