Hello Eve,I too have just managed to order the same book,from america,and it was a fraction of the cost from the uk,including the postage!,apparently I wont get mine until aug/sep,and I am so looking forward to getting it earlier if I am lucky.how long did yours' take to arrive in the end?.
I have also nearly fnished an e.mail coarse of the collie dog with V Walters.
It is the first one I have done,I loved the effect of softness the velour gives, once I had picked up the courage to draw on it!.
How did you find the tabby cat to do?.
Another really good book that is helping me is 'CATS AND DOGS',it is very handy,though the mediums used are watecolour/oil and acrylicIfound it easy to follow uing soft pastels and pastel pencils for finer work.
