2b,4b,6b pencils on sketch pad. Blue tinge from taking photo under incandescent light in a hotel room.
The heck with motorcycles let's draw sheep!
Good choice for this month Val.
Firsts?
First time I have attempted an animal portrait.
First time I drew the challenge in a hotel room when out working on a ship.
First time I remembered to bring my sketch pad when on travel,,,,,,

Some really nice sheep so far everyone. Well done.

The only thing omitted from them all is that "glint" in the eye that Dennis and Nolan say should be added in. I wonder if they feel that it should be added into this one too...

Welcome to the challenge I'm glad you figured out how to post your pictures to the forums!
Marsha is a friend of ours here in San Diego. We all went on vacation together over Christmas to Mexico and Marsha wanted me to bring my painting stuff. We went out with our sketch books and now I have dragged her over into Paint Basket too!
Good first post Marsha, see you tomorrow?

Thank you, Brian.  We are going to deal with our loss in time, with God's help.  My granddaughter and I were the last ones to spend time with Malu last Friday so we two were devastated.   :'( The dog died Sunday night after my granddaughter left to return to college.  Thank you again for your kindness. ~Liz

This is my submission for the challenge. I know Val said to focus on the head but I thought it needed something else and went ahead with a little background. (pun not intended).  It was done with HB, 4H, 4B and 6B pencils.

Right, Sally, a shorn sheep would have saved some time with all the graphite shading, but I noticed that Val seems to always look for a lot of 'character' in her subjects!   :whistle:
