Lara LaVonne Jordan


This is the very first colored pencil drawing from my sister, LaVonne. Isn't it great?

She did this as a birthday present for her husband Dave. I think she has so much talent and I have encouraged her to keep it up. This is new to her so please feel free to leave words of encouragment in the comments sections.

Wow, this is very good. It must have been difficult to get all that detail out into the wings. The leaves too, for that matter. I'm no professional, but at this point I'm getting very good at finding what's wrong with my artwork before my professors tell me, and I just see a well-colored picture here.
By all means, keep it up!

This is nice pencil work.. You kept the colors brilliant and the subject matter is quite interesting. The butterfly rendering indicates soft texture.. muy bien!

Bill, on behalf of my sister - I thank you. I think she has been won over and is going to set up her own blog - I'll keep everyone posted.

Hey,

Thanks for your comments on my boat painting. Glad you got it right about the clouds/snow, I was beginning to get anxieties...(laughing). It was lots of fun to paint. hey, tell her to keep at it with the colored pencils, I think she has the hang of it already.

best,
Todd
