Today I have worked more on Basil’s portrait, I will make sure I take a proper photo tomorrow. I love all his glorious colours in his coat. I have purples, blues, ochres, reds, pinks, creams….the list goes on! So much fun picking out the pencils to match the colours!
I also framed Rebus’ pet portrait today. Sorry it is a bad photo! One day I will master photographing a pet portrait when it is framed! It is so tricky with all the lights reflecting off the glass and if I use flash it bounces off the glass too! It is such a shame as the look so good when they are framed and it really sets the portrait off fantastically.
I hope this gives you an idea of your portrait may look like when completed….meet the gorgeous Rebus!
As usual the photos don’t do the portrait justice, you can never really get a depth for the detail and colours until you see it in the flesh. I am looking forward to paitning Rebus and Geddy together in the future!
I shall show the progress on Boris’ portrait tomorrow and then I am going to start the cow portrait, followed by Alfie the springer spaniel!
Catch up tomorrow!
