I’ve recently joined a challenge by United Art Space to draw for 14 consecutive days in February. They provide the photos (which is a real treat and I look forward to daily), there are also a few time options of which I have chosen 60 seconds, 5 mins & 60 mins sketches.
Here are my drawings for the first 5 days, the themes were:
Day 1 – Contrast Day 2 – Tone Day 3 – Composition Day 4 -Negative space Day 5 – Shadow
Thank you to Taton Tubbs who provide the images and United Art Space for the great challenge. Looking forward to sketching some more.
When I received the commission to draw a border terrier I was really excited, not only that, I was asked to draw him twice. One was a gift for christmas and the other a beautiful piece to put in their home.
It was the first time I had to do the same photo twice so I decided to draw them side-by-side. This photo is so cute with his tongue sticking out and I immediately fell in love with him.
I really love Christmas commissions, they are all done in secret, from arrangement, to previews and delivery. Here is one I did for a fellow dog walker I see most mornings, it was a gift to her husband.
With gifts it is a little sad not to know the reaction of the person when they see it, however I was sent a great video of him opening it. It made my Christmas morning xx
I am thrilled to reveal these hand painted christmas baubles that I will be selling at the Sale Arts Trail Christmas Bazaar on the 27th November. Can’t make it there, no worries as I’ll be listing them on my Etsy shop soon.
