After the Christmas rush I was commissioned to draw two lovely houses. This was a first for me, I had never drawn any type of building before (or trees for that matter!) and to be honest I was a little nervous about it. One of the reasons I was nervous was because the portraits were only 5.25 inches square! I had never drawn anything so small, how would I capture all the detail??? I started with the house I was least looking forward to drawing ~ the house with the tree in front. I figured if I could get that one done, the second house would be a breeze.

I hadn't drawn a german shepherd before and I received 2 commissions within days of each other! Both were Christmas presents which is why I couldn't post pictures of them before now. The first was a close-up color pencil portrait of Sophie, and the second, a full body graphite pencil portrait of Pepper, a black lab/shepherd mix.
