    When are we going to see some line art in “Lines and colors”?

    1. Good point, Frank — soon. I’ve been saving up some posts for “Inktober”.

  2. I love the eyes! They are so lively! If I just talk about the eyes in the pictures, I can’t tell if it’s a photograph or a drawing!

  3. I’m more interested in your color palette and your brush stroke. Hope I can see some demos. Thanks
