I did start a piece but it was so awful I binned it. I am doing that more now, instead of working on something I don't like.

Joe - The soft values and gesture is perfect. There are some warm shades there, so I would leave it as is.
Christel - Excellent, especially the natural look of the whiskers and hair.

Penny - Thank you for hosting! My first attempt was a mess, and I will try a quick sketch to force myself to work faster and looser.

Ok, Joy. I hope you do enter. I am trying to find your Japanese Lady, not sure where it is.
I found it, so no problem!

Joe, I really like your sketches. They are all very good. I love the panda and the brown ink. They have character.

Joe, I especially like the panda's expression. I am attempting it now, and making a real mess of it.

Thanks everyone for the nice words, glad you like it.
Joy, I'm glad you're drawing the panda too, it's a nice picture and it's a fantastic animal, I hope you enjoy drawing it, it will be nice to see it.

This is a watercolor, 7 x 10 on Canson XL 140CP sketchbook paper. It likely looks better on the screen than in person, as I overworked it so. The paper is cheap, and I thought I would do a quick sketch and kept trying to make it "better". I wiped out the eyes several times so the paper is tearing and there are way too many layers. No wonder he looks so glum! ;) I tried the lemur and it was so awful I binned it.
