Thanks Ivyleaf, you have no idea how many times he climbed up and down that tree. It was right next to our campsite and as soon as his father taught him how to climb it (grrrr LOL) he wouldn't stop!
Thanks TeAnne, everyone always comments on his eyes, they are much more beautiful in real life... of course perhaps my opinion is a little biased
Thanks TJ, yes my son loves it, he wants it for his room. It is getting a bit easier as I do more, I am understanding the skin tone colours a bit more, although I still don't think I could tackle it on white paper yet, the coloured grounds seem to make it so much easier. This piece of suede didn't seem quite as soft or something, so the colours weren't blending as well, but I have one more piece before I go back to the store and start digging for more
Also, do you know anything about flannel matboard? Is it similar? I saw it on the Dick Blick for a reasonable price.
Thanks MissMouse, I do wish I could get it to scan like the original, but except for the splochyness it's pretty close.
, this is definitely one that I will treasure for a long time.
