Latest Commission

It's been a while since i've been able to post on here as i have been busy finishing college for the year and end of year exams make for very little drawing time! However, college is over until January now so i am in full drawing mode and have a commission on the go currently which i am about half way through.

This latest piece is of two terriers that unfortunately are no longer with us. The piece is of a portrait of each with a smaller full body drawing of each including on the same drawing. It's quite large at 12" x 18" and to date is the largest i have done. It's definitely a challenging piece being two very 'hairy type' dogs but i am enjoying it so far. I am using coloured pencil again for this piece on Fabriano paper.

Work in Progress

I am going to start on the second dog this afternoon and hopefully aim to have the entire drawing finished by the end of the weekend. Unfortunately i am still scanner iliterate and so have not managed to take any decent close up's of the small drawing, but hopefully will be able to do this at a later stage when i have got the second small drawing done (and i finally work out how to use the scanner!). Will aim to post another update when i have made progress on the second portrait in the centre in a couple of days.


  1. It looks like it is going to be wonderful!

  2. Thanks very much. I have just posted the finished piece and i'm happy with how it turned out. Hope you like it.
