thanks Karla ..and yes you certainly are about color ...the bricks in the old buldings are different shades of red-brown ...I'll try that .

thanks Irina ..I too was touched by this photo and the fireman who cared about a very frightened cat . I was thinking of uasing blue-greys

It is very kind and touching picture. It seems to me, that here it is not necessary brighter tones - just such color scale approaches for this plot!

Great Job

I like this one! Color? Well I am all about color! Hahaha Maybe some bolder colors? I love the sketch. Lots of great shadowing! Will we get to see the cat redone? Its Great Mary! Karla USA

thanks

thanks breighdi ...you've made me want to do a good painting . My son teases me that when I do people they look like 'close but distant relatives' .. I'm just delighted that my stuff is recognizable .

Hi Mary, You are very talented. I can't wait to see this when its complete. I am curious as to what the expression on the firemans face will be.
