WDE-Dec-3-10 Baby + Little Cowboy MI hopefully

Hi All
What a great way to celebrate the RIL library... thanks Beth... wonderful images!! Still trying to get portraits without too much success but I will keep plugging.... its all in the tilt and proportions....
Little Cowboy about 30 minutes charcoal pencil on colored heavy paper
24x30 cm...scanner cut some off..turned out a bit older



Who could resist baby blue eyes!!!! Brown paper sketch pad A4 2B pencil and charcoal pencil... wanted to fix the tilt and messed the whole thing up
decided to leave well enough alone....



Thanks for looking and commenting
C&C Welcome
Carol

lots of success on these two... great sketches!

scanners are frustrating, especially on monotone art... colors never seem right.

Ah they are both lovely, the little cowboy is especially good with those strong directional lines on the coloured paper.
