Brony,

I can see why Bonnie meant so much to you.  Looks like a loyal dog.

Lucky you did the sketch.

I love Bonnie's expression in your drawing.  O0 She looks as though someone shorted her on her cookie ration! Can just imagine the thoughts!  ;D

Beautiful works of Bonnie. Well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

After 18 months of not being able to work on any of my art projects (I hate being sick!) finally. . . .finally I finished the sunset. Why I started my introduction to acrylics with this class, I'll never know! I have NO experience with oils, never even tried and, this is my very first attempt at acrylics. . . . .
I could point out all the mistakes, but why spoil all your fun? LOL!! :2funny:
It's really great to be back - just hope I can keep on painting and get back to drawing again!
Hugs everyone :hug:  Bev

Bev  :welcome: back, it is nice to have you here again.  What a comeback with a  :fight: Lovely painting and to think this is your first in acrylic and oil  :yippee: Well done.     The only thing I would do is the post it seams to thin near the top below the lamp, otherwise excellent painting.
 Hope your health issues are over.   :-*

Val, Val.  Hey, where is she?? Don't recall having heard from her for days.  I hate it when she skips off without warning.

We could ask her if she has fallen overboard. . . :eek: I sure hope not!  Perhaps her network is not working?
 :boat: You know being as she gets so far away sometimes!!
