My trade secrets…

Are you interested in how I do my portraits? Would you like to learn some of my secrets? Do you want to know how to create your own masterpiece?

Well I can try and help you.

I am going to show you my tricks of the trade. Things I have learnt in the 10 years I have been doing my pet portraits and using pastels.
