My didnt you work hard. Amazing number of wonderful different media but I think I prefer the colourful acrylics. Mind you the 50 min laying down inktense at the bottom takes some beating. Congrats on a wonderful days work.

Nice job with the skin tone in your acrylics. I especially like the top one!

Thank you. I had a great time, I only wish I had something similar locally so I could attend weekly.
