Here you will find my latest work and work in progress
Isn’t she lovely? This is the beautiful Lilly, reference photograph by her owner, Sarah King.
As with all my subjects, I saw Lilly’s photograph and I just wanted to draw her, it’s the eyes!
I really enjoyed drawing her portrait using soft pastels and pastel pencils. I wanted to leave the background blank so I chose a complimentary pastelmat.
Lilly also has a son called Leo and you may see him here soon with his own pet portait.
Completed November 2018
A gorgeous ginger cat painted in oils on canvas. Reference photograph by Emmanuel Keller.
I loved this photograph as soon as I saw it. I started painting him in 2017 but I put him aside for over a year as I was busy with other work. Just the underlayers were completed so I had a fair bit of work to do before he was finished but I am happy I’ve completed him now.
Completed October 2018
A Northern-Inuit Hybrid in Pastels. The reference photograph is by Caroline Arnott.
I was drawn to this photograph and just had to do it. He looks so happy to be out on such a lovely day. I think he is looking for the ball to be thrown again…and again…and again!
Completed September 2018
