Maggie’s portrait is nearly finished but no more sneak peaks now until the final piece has been scanned in! Can’t wait to share her portrait with you.

I love a change of media for my pet portraits so I relish the opportunity to use graphite. I think it is a very under valued medium. Pastels are too.. I think most people think of oils first. However they have their disadvantages. Drying time, varnishing are one of the two I can think of. I think each artist finds a medium they have their affinity with. I have tried most and Pastels, followed by watercolours and graphite are my favourite.

Anyway here is Widget’s portrait under way. 10×12 dog portrait in graphite.
