I was quite busy before my trip to SA and also since my return
Haven't had as much time for colouring as I would like :roll:

Finished this one off last night.
(Started it a few weeks ago before I left for SA)

I was given an expesive set of coloured pencils for my birthday.
These are quite waxy in comparison to some of the other sets that I have.

Yes, and tbh, I prefer the "cheap and cheerful" pencils.

But the MIL spent a lot of money on these for me.
So I need to be seen to be using them :roll:

That is lovely. 8) It is interesting how there is a definite difference in the texture.

This must be very relaxing, but it must take a lot of skill. I could imagine my cuzz Hugh getting 'stuck in'.
