I am a member of a group of seasoned artists who meet weekly to sketch and paint. The artists are so helpful to one another by only positively commenting and for me they encourage yet push me to be the best I can be.
The comments were: the top wood slat on the gate needed to be smaller, toned down and highlighted. I brought in a picture of a wooly lamb that was woolier (is this a word?) than the one I had used for reference. I like him better now but intend to work a little more to add some more shadow under his little tummy.
