my book arrived!!,as you it really only took 3 weeks,the book is very good as it is soley for pastels (at last) and her work is just amazing,but I was disapointed that some of her work in the book are her pictures and techniques I allready had in other books.
I havent come across the somerset paper so will keep my eyes peeled to see what it is like ?.
The only thing that I have not done to my collie yet is the final stage,the wiskers, like you Iam short on time and although Vivien offered to put my collie in her students gallery when finished ,there are so many pics of the collie I cant see it selling,what I would like to do is try the tabby cat ,as I am not to good at getting depth of fur texture,and I would definately like to put into practice the the techniques I learned on viviens collie, into a pic of my own photo of a collie, to see if it comes out just as well??.Unfortunately ,there is no gallery here for people to show everyone thier work,I would love to see what your' cat looked like,and would be happy to give you my e.mail so we can see each others paintings,what do you think??
