Sam, what a beautiful baby and beautiful painting. It is fascinating to see how you work - how the painting emerges from the paper in a specific area. Again, just beautiful.

I finished a drawing of the flintlock today. It is 8 1/2 x 11 charcoal and cont'e crayon on light tan.Canson Mi-Teintes.
Geri, this is an extremely handsome painting of the flintlock and pouch. It's so well executed, and the contrast in values is beautiful. Wow. And I love that it's matted. Somehow that's the finishing touch.
Alex thank you. I am glad you enjoyed it.
Just between you and me the mat is photoshoped I have not cut a mat for it yet. Don't tell anyone it is a secret.
Geri, your flintlock drawing is excellent. I agree with Alex that the values are very good. The pouch looks 3D. Your photoshop mat shows it off well. Alex told me it is a Photoshop mat. Well done drawing.
Sam/Sammy C & C Welcome
LOL, Geri and Sam!
Boy last time I tell her any secrets.
Jen C & C's always welcome
Geri this a great drawing! I like the light tan paper you've used as it gives a historical look to the whole image. I can't even imagine what it would be like to have to load a gun like this and all that goes with that process and mean while the deer has ran off. lol
C&C's are welcome.

Sam, this is so wonderful it takes your breath away. Your great granddaughter is beautiful and you have captured that perfectly.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Geri, a great sketch of the flintlock. The charcoal and backgound colour give it that aged look and you have developed such good shap to the powder horn and bag.
Sam Olivia is so beautiful. Such a proud great-grandmother.I can't wait to see your finished work.
Critique and criticism appreciated.
Sam your pastel painting is going to be just perfect when the skin tones are adjusted great start
Geri charcoal must be one of your better mediums, this is great the powder horn almost becomes the focal point but still doesn't dominate. The flintlock is still the story, very well done
