I really like these....I know I always like what you do though but really I think this approach works too! I think the softer look works really well with the scene where you are conveying that they are in a busy street some where. It works well in that it hints that there are quite a few people in the picture but you don't have to see all the details. I also love the way you have drawn the little girl looking back. I have real trouble drawing faces from the side and always seem to have to do them from the front which isn't always practical. So well done I think this is great work!
Oh, these are pretty! They look so soft and a little whimsical. Beautiful! :) Silke
Nice stuff. Lighter shades & sharper contrast suggest well lit surroundings...the mouse series was more in a dingy underground tunnel. Lines make these elegant, but also reduce the cuddle factor in comparison.
You have such a beautiful, sensitive style, Shirley! I hope you get your web site up and running soon. I love your work!-Cyn:)
Nicola - thank you for your generous words! I'm glad you like the "new" style and you're right..drawing the face at different angles and perspectives is such a challenge for me too - I sketch and sketch, and erase and erase, and then something comes about. I'm always relieved when it "turns out properly"! Thank you for coming by!Silke - so nice of you to say! Thanks!justdoodleit - glad to hear from you - the comments are so constructive and I very much appreciate it..this helps me along tremendously.Cyn - wonderful of you to stop by and for your generous comments!

Oh these are so sweet!
your work is always so sweet and beautiful, I love how extra delicate these ones turned out
I think it's lovely! The water colour on your little pup there is so wonderfully delicate, it's a great style!~ Alisa
Shirley, I like your beautiful style, your watercolors (I presume). And of all my favorite is this little dog.
Feedback! You rock! Thanks for your words...
