A Meerkat

I haven't done any painting for a few weeks due to me being in hospital and then recuperating, but this morning I picked up my Faber Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils and had a go at this Meerkat...I may be a bit rusty but at least I had a go.

This painting is taken from a lesson by Colin Bradley in England.....you can see some of his demos on You Tube ...he goes under the name of colin1940 if you are interested
