The Likely Lads

This is my latest. I really struggled to maintain my interest, but I got there in the end. I so didnt want to spoil it by rushing it.

Tinted Charcoal on Pastelmat. Size approx A3.


  1. Oh I love this Bev. What a wonderful partner for the 'cheeky girls'.
    Meerkats are such wonderful characters aren't they?
    I know nothing about tinted charcoal - did you use it for the background also?

    Really pleased you maintained your interest - the end result was definitely worth it!

  2. Thanks Sue,
    I am enjoying the charcoals, very much like using pastel pencils but they are a bit harder and of course there is a limited colour choice. But I like the muted colours. I used soft pastel sticks for the background, they are just much quicker to use and save so much time.

  3. Such a delightful pair of meerkats - I really like the tinted charcoal.

  4. Wonderful Bev! And the tinted charcoal is amazing.


Tiger just completed, I've called it 'Concentration' because he looks as if he is concentrating on prey to pounce on.  I us...
