I’ve changed the way I now blog. I am posting progress on what I am working on my homepage with regular updates. When I’ve finished the piece I will post it in a blog just like this one as a complete blog of each piece. Your welcome to follow current progress as I share updates or even my blogs if you would like to see recent works established.
This is a recent portrait of Maggie in pastel pencils on A4. Here are some of the progress photos from start to finish…
I’ve used Faber Castell Pitts, CarbOthello and Caran d’Ache pastel pencils. She came up beautifully, so much fur but I must admit I really love painting fur. I had a fabulous photo to work from which always helps. Maggie was very precious to her owners!
Check out my homepage for what I am working on now!
I am very fortunate to be able to paint such beautiful animals, just like Georgia who was very precious to her owners. She is created with pastel pencils on A3 colourfix smooth
I haven’t had as much time to blog lately, life is keeping me busy. School holidays have just finished here, kids first day back today ‘hooray’ says every Mum ever!!!
I have a new little drawing to share that I have been working on between commissions of my crazy white bull terrier Minni, otherwise known as Mousey, Mouse, Mint Sauce, the great white and the destroyer of all things! Haha! She is 4 years old now and has settled a little but is still a looney most of the time. When she gets excited she does zoomies and she also likes to talk to you by grunting. She thinks every bit of food should be hers and will give you the starving eyes like she’s never been fed. She likes having her jumper on to keep her warm in this crappy winter weather we are currently having.
Here is my drawing of Mousey, in graphite pencils on A5 hotpress…
This is a portrait of the beautiful miss Taylah. Here are some progress photos of the creative process. Once again I’ve used Faber Castell Pitts and CarbOthello Pastel Pencils on A4 Colourfix smooth.
I really enjoyed painting Taylah’s gorgeous long locks. Below is the final artwork, thank you so much Taylah!! xox
I love all animals, especially cats if you didn’t know that already. This painting is of Cleo, a beautiful black cat with the bluest eyes. I have a blue eyed kitty too named Storm, he is white and part Rag Doll I think. The most layed back cat I’ve ever had, hardly meows, sleeps with his mouth open, loves belly pats and you can pick him up like a baby! I always say he is too pretty to be a boy kitty but don’t let that fool you, he is infact a warrior! Hehe
So I’ve been wanting to do time lapse videos for a long time, I’ve never had much time to do so before when I was always busy tattooing, fine art didn’t happen alot. Now that I am back into my fine art again I thought I would start doing them. So I’ve had the camera fall on my head a couple of times and several times it hasn’t been recording when I thought it was, so I am still finding my feet with it and hope to improve in the future.
Here is a couple of photos of the progress of Cleo …
I have used Faber Castell Pitts, CarbOthellos and Caran d’Ache pastel pencils on A4 Colourfix smooth
Final artwork below, but first I want to share a video time lapse of Cleo, there are some bits that aren’t there due to camera not recording when I thought it was but you can see her develop…
I hope to do more of these types of videos in the future. Below is a photo of the final artwork, photo reference used from Jacky Werner of her beautiful kitty Cleo…
I’ve recently finished a portrait of Dozer, a blueheeler who is now at rest. I’ve used Faber Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils and CarbOthello Pastel Pencils on A3 Colourfix smooth, 300gsm. Here are some progress photos from start to finish ….
Below is a short hyperlapse video of working on Dozers paw. I would love to do some more videos in the future, perhaps I will learn how to do them a bit better as I feel my light was too bright for this one
And here is the final artwork of ‘Dozer’ …
A new painting of Nimoy in pastel pencils. I have such a great photo to work from, such a cute puppy! I’ve used Faber Castell Pitts and CarbOthello pastel pencils. Here are some photos of the stages ….
And the final artwork of the handsome Nimoy…. 🙂
