Shady Lady 2 and Mr. Elephant

 
 
An older pencil piece  (top).   I hadn't learned the art of softening/blending yet.  And the Elephant is one I just did..
Posting today as I'm not doing any painting except for my walls.. It's tiring and will finish up soon.
  I have the Art Guild Christmas Show in a week, so lots to do..
Missing watercolor painting but will be back to it soon..
Happy Thanksgiving to all.. BJ

  2. The portrait is stunning without the blending, honestly. It sets a mood and expresses a certain feeling the way you drew it. It's very artistic! By contrast, I like the soft blending on the elephant portrait, and the gentle mood it creates for him!

  7. Dear BJ - whether it is watercolor or pencil I always enjoy seeing your work. Your elephant is outstanding and as for your older piece I think she is wonderful. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Don't work too hard painting those walls!
