Thanks Dennis. Your lesson has given me the techniques I was searching for and now all I need is to use them better. I took a few liberties with the colours, mostly because I only have 12 pencils and I really screwed up on the hairy hump, but since no one I know have ever seen a Kudu doe, I'll probably get away with it.

Glad you posted this because I was just about to check out the lesson.  I find it helpful now to go to the forum topic to see how others do a lesson before I start it.

For some reason when I saw the hairy hump, it reminded me of the guys at the airport who shine shoes - don't they have something like that where you put your foot up to be brushed?

Looks good and fun to do.

Well done Alan! You obviously took Val's advice and went to the link for Dennis's lesson. Now loo at 'ya! Knocking out a great art work after such frustration with the watercolour pencil use on 'ya landscape. Well done and, congratulations for sticking with it. :clap: :clap: :clap:
