Hey!
It is no problem, I'm sorry for being a month late:giggle:
Well its better being busy doing things than being bored doing nothing at all, though I do miss seeing your drawings^^ always looking forward to seeing them:)

Thank you, I felt like we were falling apart a little so wrote it to show her I care and still there for her.

Its nice to hear from you again, I am reading all comments, I'm just taking years to get back to them... sorry:hug:

It appears being away from the artist side of myself for a quarter of a century means there's new stuff available. Amazing! I just had to look up what in the world an electric eraser was-what will they come up with next? :giggle:

hahaha

the one I have is from Derwent and only costs around € 8,00. Battery operated, light in weight so easy to handle. It is a great help to get the whites back in the darker patches of graphite and ideal to ´draw´ white lines!
the tip can be pointed by holding some sanding paper against it and letting run :-)

Thank you so much for the tip. There are quite a few of them out there so I'll take your advice since you've already shown you can do amazing stuff with it. Now I just need to find where to order the talent and confidence that I used to have all of those years ago from! :confused:
