Portrait in pencil

A couple of weeks ago I recieved an unusual request at my Honk'n'Holl'r blog. It was a request to draw a blogger's portrait. It seems that "Fake Dane" ask many artists to draw the very same portrait from his picture. He says that it is interesting to see how each artist will paint or draw the same subject uniquely. He then posts all portraits he recieves on his blog. I accepted his request and this is the result.


This is the original photograph he sent me

Adult Colouring Pages Free to Download

Adult Colouring Pages Adult colouring books are becoming more popular, and as their popularity grows so does the price tag. I just went and bought one for my wife and the price was well over $30 CAD. That's pretty steep as far as I'm concerned. 
I bought it because I was hearing all the benefits of colouring for relaxation, mindfulness, and the like.

And, well, there is tons of stuff out there. Two sites that I found are quite good and have lots of pages that you can download for free. Davidrd Colle…
