Flo finished

I've finished Flo today subject to her owners approval. I'm just waiting to hear if she's happy with her. Sorry the white on her neck is a bit glaring but I've had to use the flash and it's come out really light.

Next commission is a Cocker Spaniel but I won't be able to post any progress pics as it's for a surprise.

Here's todays updates of Flo. She's progressing well and her owner is very pleased with her so far.

Here's my next commission. Flo, an English Springer Spaniel. I've actually made good progress on this today. The light was really good this morning although it's fading now and is quite dull so I think I'll pack the pencils away until tomorrow.

Lily finished

Here are the rest of Lily's progress pics and her finished. It's taken quite a bit of work on her muzzle area with the grey flecks in her fur. My client is pleased with her and she will be going to her new home on Tuesday.

Here's todays progress on Lily. I didn't get as much done as I'd hoped. Hopefully more progress tomorrow.

Whilst waiting for photos of the English Springer I got another commission so I've made a start on that one instead. This is Lily a Border cross. A more senior lady of 15 years who I had the pleasure of meeting on Saturday. She's a lovely girl and very friendly. She posed well for her photo shoot, with the aid of a biscuit for distraction. It was nice to actually meet one of my subjects, and her Mum and Dad, in person as most of the contact I have with people is via the internet.

Hopefully they'll be more progress pics tomorrow.

This is my boy Pip. I've been meaning to do his adult portrait for ages and just haven't got around to it. Anyway here he is in a typical pose he adopts when you're talking to him.

Next portrait is either going to be another person practice piece or an English Springer commission.

I started this little chap as a practice piece ages ago and never got round to finishing him. Anyway I completed him yesterday. He's called Oliver and he's a King Charles Spaniel. I've really enjoyed working on him as he wasn't a commissioned piece so no pressure :-))

Don't forget the '£20 off any portrait' offer finishes on the 15th January.
