For my last birthday I received a lovely gift from my sister Marina; a trip to London. My sister, mother and I went for four days together and we had a really great time! Also, I’m happy to have had the opportunity to reload my batteries for a few days, getting ready for the last portraits in line before my longer vacation to Slovenia.

Today I’m already at home, working on next dog portrait in line with gained  inspiration. This pastel drawing will be created on white Canson Mi Tientes Touch paper of a lovely dog named Zorba. The client visited my “Photo Tips” section and decided to let somebody take new photos of Zorba, based on the tips I have on there.

I’m so happy I’ve got such lovely photos of Zorba to work from :). The portrait will make a great gift for a happy recipient.
