This is the place where you can view the interesting progress of all commissioned pet and family portraits. If you commissioned a portrait or if you just love to follow my work you will be able to view all photos I post by each step here. This section was created for my clients who love to be a part of the painting progress and watch how the portrait is developing. Don’t forget to participate by leaving a comment, no matter who you are!
This is the scanned image of my latest conté pastel drawing, two English Springer Spaniels Billy and Annie. This drawing is black and white, only little color is used on their eyes. That is what my conte pastels are alla bout, using very little color and not many different hues. The scan doesn’t do the original drawing any justice at all, but there is nothing I can do about it. I think it’s time to add new conté drawings to my website gallery, replace them with some older ones. I will do that sometime in December or January for sure. I love all my lastest conte drawings!
These are the work in progress photos of two Spaniels, their names are Billy and Annie. While I was drawing their portraits I managed to take some photos, you can view them below. The drawing is completed already, I just need to scan it now.
Yesterday I completed and scanned the Dog Portrait in Conte Pastel of Black Labrador Jenson as a puppy. I’m very happy with the outcome of this drawing, just lovely. The drawing is entirely black and white, except on eyes and parts of the nose, this really gives some extra life to the portrait. Unfortunately I’m way behind on my work and won’t be able to take on many more Christmas portraits this year, I blame my puppy for that :). Next portrait in line is Billy and Anne and I will get started today.
