Latest commission - another Molly

Here is the start of my latest commission. This is Molly, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel. The portrait is graphite pencil, 8" x 10".

I was given the choice of two photos to draw for this one and the one I chose of her sleeping was so cute I couldn't resist.

Here she is so far:

A is for Art.....

As you may have noticed, I've not yet produced anything for my art alphabet! However, today I have finally decided on my subject for A - A is for Arabian. I have an image in my head of what I want to end up with and have found a couple of fantastic references to work from, so keep coming back, there will be something to look at soon.

I have also found three National Art Exhibitions that appeal to me for entering this year. I may not produce enough to enter all three but I'll see what I manage. I'll let you know nearer the time what I'm entering, just in case nothing goes to plan!! I am also going to look into local art groups and maybe a local exhibition.

Today, A is also for ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals), 2.3" x 3.5" pieces of artwork. It always amazes me how long these little drawings take, about 2.5 hours! This one is of a Shetland pony and is in graphite pencil. I will be putting it on ebay tomorrow for sale:

Completed Dressage Horse

Have now finished the drawing of the dressage horse. Have really enjoyed doing this one and am pretty pleased with how it turned out.

It's now all framed and ready to go in the post. As I said before it's a donation for an equestrian workshop event happening at Thurso College on Sunday 13th March.

Here is the finished drawing. It's 10" x 12" in graphite pencil.

There is a photograph of it framed on my Facebook Page.

Dressage Horse Update

Here is an update on the dressage horse. I changed his ears as I didn't like them pointing back as they were before, I think he looks happier in his work now!
