"Ruby".

"Ruby"
Last year Sarah and I stayed in Norfolk, the owners had a collie called Ruby, I took a couple of photos back then hoping to one day get around to drawing/painting her, such a lovely colour and friendly dog. I completed this piece using coloured pencils and then added painted gouache to the white areas only.

"Archie & Fin"

 These are my last 2 commission pieces for our good friend Becky Betts. I got the chance to photograph them myself and they performed perfectly. I completed them using coloured pencil, made by Faber Castell, Derwent and Prismacolor. 
 "Fin" checking himself out.

New Drawings.

 Here are two more recent drawings, a Chocolate Labrador and a European Bee-Eater. I think the bee-eaters are a stunning bird with such an array of brilliant colours.

My Little Girl Elka.

 A coloured pencil and watercolour piece of my little French Bulldog Elka. I think she approved of it as she tried to keep licking the paper!

Border Terrier Artwork. "MAX"

Max
Completed this Border Terrier portrait of Max using coloured pencil with just a small amount of gouache for finer details. I chose this image as it had such a lovely gaze to him, I had to get the eyes just right to bring out that endearing look.
