Jake (the slimmer version)
and another couple of updates on Spice, the King Charles Spaniel - memorial portrait
More background colour in place here - the lines round the edge are masking tape. Yet again, its raining this afternoon so I'm struggling to photograph the progress pics.
I've used lots of blues and mauves to 'lift' the black coat. In reality the colours are much more subtle than they appear here
So, just waiting to hear what my client thinks so far.
I'm doing my usual volunteer job at Pilgrims Hospice eBay office tomorrow but hope to finish this portrait on Thursday and then I can really have a proper springclean and get rid of the pastel dust that is coating everything in my studio at the moment. Once I have a clean working area again I'll put the finishing touches to the coloured pencil drawings ready to be shipped next month to Patching Art Centre (UKCPS Annual International Exhibition).
