Done with coloured pencils. This was inspired by an ornament on our mantelpiece – the rest is imaginative.

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.
Many thanks Amir.
yes beautiful! I haven’t used coloured pencils for quite a while (though I spotted them in the cupboard today….)
They are a great way of creating a picture without making too much mess on the table or carpet :)

Thank you. This is actually a little ornament on our mantelpiece. The colours and the background are all imaginative of course.
Magnificent! Just love those legs! :)
Thanks. Yes, I sort of got carried away and stylised the legs.
Excellent work as always Dave …
wow, Dave, This is superb!! love the colors, and your style is instantly recognised as yours!!! What brand of pencils do you use? i can’t get mine to cover that solidly. I have used several different brands, maybe i just need to color harder?
I’ve checked on the Internet, but I don’t think the pencils I use are available in USA … I may be wrong though. I buy them from a nation-wide stationer called W. H. Smith … they are cheap -£5 for 36 and once a year or so they have a sale and I stock up at £3.50 a go :) Not sure what that is in dollars. They have a waxy constituency as opposed to being chalky and I burnish them with a paper towel while working. Thanks for taking an interest.
OHhhhh! I love this Dave. The colors and the work as a whole is vibrant and dynamic. Is this one of your little beauties?
Thanks Bunny. Actually this is based on an ornament on our mantelpiece. I usually use my computer to view my photos, but my son was using it one night when i felt the urge to do a drawing. I sat with my drawing pad and my eye rested on the ornament and away I went :)
Fabulous design, Dave !!!you’ll have to get your chickens one of these ! lol
Many thanks Deborah.
