Beautiful Brutus

Check out Brutus in his frame! The client decided on a double mat, one to bring out the colour in his eyes, the other to bring out the colour in the water. Unfortunately Brutus is no longer with us, but this is a great way for him to be remembered. I think he looks awesome!! Share if you like.

Nina & Ranger ~ A surprise Christmas gift

Nina & Ranger ...... Just one of my graphite pencil portraits commissioned as a surprise Christmas gift, and that had to be kept a secret until now. I can't wait to receive a photograph of the portrait when it is up in it's frame!

Colour Pencil Portrait of Brutus

Here is the portrait I have been working on for the last few months. It is a second portrait of Brutus, the black lab mix I had drawn in graphite pencil earlier in the year. It is the largest colour pencil portrait to date, 10 x 20 inch, and the first time I have attempted to draw water in this medium. I love taking photos of the work in progress and I thought I would share them.
