That would make a nice avatar. Pink is a favorite color of mine so I am admittedly biased.

I really like your work, Imf4. Nice balance of watercolour and pastels....great shading! Prairie.

This is not wildlife...but it is Wild Life. Syd Barrett, one of the founders of Pink Floyd.

I don't know how to do draping yet, so his clothes are awkward. I'm taking a drawing class next semester, LOL!

I don't like his hair either, so I'm going to re-do the whole dang thing.

Here is an actual wildlife picture. It's the last Dusky Seaside Sparrow, and it's extinction is largely due to NASA.

I love the Indian Pipe watercolor, Prairiefreak. Beautiful background washes.

The portrait is very good Prairie. The face and shading are great. You'll get the clothing. I do a lot of pencil portraits but haven't done any in watercolor.

The Sparrow makes me sad. I guess that's the point though, isn't it.

Thanks for the compliments! They are much appreciated encouragement! Im4, yeah, it's sad. And angering, too, LOL!

Sage, my teacher says I have a quirky style, LOL! Nice blog, BTW!
