Lovely rich colours and your colouring of the bird is fabulous. Good to have you back. I use a separate wireless mouse with my laptop, much faster than a touchpad mouse.

Hi Nic this is absolutely beautiful such wonderful papers, colours, flowers and that image is stunning. It is amazing how different your images now look when you use polychromo's compared to promarkers, do you use the stub blender as well or just the pencils on their own?
