Last week I was working on Albie’s portrait. I. Had hoped he would have been in his forever home by now but due to the post office system not recognising the delivery address I had to bring back home until my client decided on an alternative address. I am hoping we won’t have the same problem Monday! It does happen sometimes.

I loved drawing all his shar pei creases

Here he is framed in the gold frame selected to match a previous painting

Later this week I shall show some of my other pet portraits, including a more detailed WIP of a very special eventing horse painting I have to do. I am genuinely very excited to do this magnificent horse portrait.

I may try and talk about my techniques so maybe it might be helpful for you if you are struggling with your pastels!
