Some of my animal portraits #315

Here are some of my drawings of various animals including a lion, a tiger and a dog. The dog was my beloved friend who passed away years ago. His name was Ficko.

I used Derwent drawing pencils on 9×12″ toned paper.

Any comments or critiques are welcome.

Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.

There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.

PABLO PICASSO

Walking in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania this abstract and wildly colorful thing caught my attention. The tight framing and the saturated, vivid colors make a strong visual impact. The main subject is the forms and the colors. This is pretty much my first venture into the abstract world. Do you like it? Do you prefer the first or second picture?
