  1. You do such beautiful portraits Colette. They are so lifelike..absolutely perfect! I really enjoy your WIP and so happy that you share this with us.

  2. Just brilliant job as always Colette.
    I love your work, it's just amazing.

  3. Thanks so much Hilda and Dors for your kind words! Glad you like it. xxx

  4. This is great! So glad you posted this work on Suede mat board--I am getting ready to use suede mat board for a tiger I have drawn 11x 14, in graphite, I thought I would use a grey-grey suede, its a Christmas gift for my son---The pencil work came out OK, but I am still thinking about using the suede---maybe I will do it in watercolor , too--just to learn as much as I can, Its my drawing after all! I will post it on my blog soon. Your work is very inspiring and beautiful.

  5. Hi Ida and thanks so much for your compliments! I think you will love the suede and the choice of colors one has to choose. It works relatively quickly for me now but took a bit of experiment when I first started using it. Now, I always try to use a suitable colored background that I can use to my advantage. Looking forward to seeing your tiger!

  6. J'avais hâte de voir le produit final. C'est vraie que le bleu du ciel et le quai ajoutent beaucoup à ta composition. Vas-y d'avant!!
