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

I used Derwent Tinted Charcoal pencils as I really like the muted colours for wildlife, I did use a yellow and a terracotta Derwent Pastel pencil, in small areas of the fur, just to lift it a little. The paper is Canson sanded paper, which I wasn't that keen on, it's quite rough and has a very gritty feel to it, I much prefer Fisher 400 if I am going to use a sanded paper. The size is A4.

  2. Lovely work Bev.

    I'm amazed how much detail you get into a relatively small work. You must keep those pencils VERY sharp :)

    We did a Safari trip in Kenya last Summer and took thousands of photos - too many really as I now can't decide on which one(s) to draw (too much choice).
