new Original

This is from refs I tok at Ampton Point to point. It was a wonderful sunny afternoon and I am hoping this is going to turn out well as I would like to enter it in a Summer exhibition.

I think its 24 x20" approx, so much for going smaller!

Apologies for the smudge in the middle of the pics, luckily its on the camera not the artwork!

last one in progress

After an initial panic at doing a long haired and mostly white terrier on white :O I am enjoying this little one!

I aim to be finished by the morning.

Nearly there

I am pleased that this is finally coming together. Just the final details and the neck to do.
The photos not the best to see the colour (the paper is white!)

2nd dog head in progress

This is the 2nd part of the 3 head dog commission, which I have spent a while agonising over today! Its quite difficult to portray a very blonde dog on white paper but I think Im finally winning. It still needs work on the muzzle and she has no whiskers yet either.

Bit more, with better pic :D

New original

Blurry photos, the camera doesnt like green canford!

This is a little A3 that I am doing in coloured pencil along with the new commission. Its based on a jockey and groom that I photographed at Cottenham Point to point, just before the ladies Open. This poor girl actually had a fall and didnt complete the race but at least she, and the lovely horse were OK.

This is turning out quite 'painterly' compared to my other work, Im not sure why! It could be that I am using more coloursoft pencils than my usual supracolour.
