Such an iconic plane but sadly the last commercial Concorde flight was 2003 (first commercial flight was 1976) and I never got to experience its supersonic speed
Here's the latest progress picture of Reggie the dog .... I probably won't do any more to the portrait till I get some feedback from my client. I have a selection of ref photos showing the dog from a 'young man' to an advanced age so his coat colouring has altered considerably and I need a bit of guidance here before adding final whilskers etc. My client isn't available for a few days as she has been whisked away by her husband for a surprise long weekend I'm told. Lucky lady!
I will need to give this pastel a good spray with fixative as it is going to Singapore so will need additional protection whilst in transit. Fixative tends to dull colours a bit but it can't be helped ...
We're off now for the usual round of family visiting. I'm also going to deliver the family group portrait to my client's Mum-in-Law who will keep it safely till next Sunday when it will be presented to the recipient as a Mother's Day Gift. The delivery address is only 30 minutes drive from where my Mum lives so I'd rather hand deliver the portrait than entrust it to couriers as it is rather large!
