Pretty with lots of depth in it.
Congrats on getting through the month with daily sketches. I can't always write but I see them (bloglines and dial-up)

Hi Alan
This is just beautiful! I love the yellows with the cracks and the point of view is striking also

Hey Alan~Thanks for the comment. You do use colored pencils very well. You have given me inspiration.

Alan, this is wonderful---there's lots of gusto and drama in the composition. I love the colors you've chosen, too. I've always found it hard to convey deep space or large objects with colored pencils, but you've done both beautifully!

Sue said...

Fantastic! You have quite a knack with colored pencils.

I have enjoyed seeing all of your drawings for May, but this one might be my favorite. Great color and composition - nicely done!
