Tiger and peacock

I finally took the time to work on a couple of drawings I'd been wanting to do for a while. It was very enjoyable to just draw for fun. I hadn't done an ACEO in quite a while, it felt strange to work on such a small format again, but quite satisfying to get the immediate gratification of a piece finished faster then the larger ones. I have to do more.

Colored Pencil Magazine Monthly Challenge

Here are a couple more projects I've been working on. Last month, once the holiday madness was finally over, I decided to enter the Colored Pencil Magazine challenge. Each month they share a photo that anyone can draw to enter their competition. The only rule is that it needs to be done mostly with colored pencils. It was very challenging, but a lot of fun, and most of all, a great way to improve my skills. So I decided to enter every month, if I can. Here are my first two entries, they both are 5x7".
A big thank you to photographer Sally Ford for sharing her beautiful photos.
