Things have been all go this weekend and I've barely had a chance to sit down let alone post on my blog so without further ado .......drum roll ........ 'Horse on Film' is now officially 'Day Dreamer'. Thank you to Lynn from Belgium for this great suggestion - a print will be on its way to you soon.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank those who took the time to send me their ideas - it really is much appreciated.

So had a great time doing lunch, shopping, talking and visiting. My best friend from school was over from Australia (hi Michelle), having emigrated there just under three years ago, so it was great to catch up with her - talking on the phone just isn't the same. I even had a proper night out, my first in a looooong time.
It wasn't all fun and play though - I did get some work done including this Jack Russell called Archie, my latest commission.
Changing the subject slightly, the closing date for giving a title to my 'Horse on Film' is this Saturday so any suggestions you might have are still gratefully received. A couple of people have chosen to email me personally via my website with their suggestions which is great if you prefer to do it this way. Either way let me have them.

When starting a portrait, be it human or animal, I always start with the eyes and work my way out. Get them wrong and the portrait just won't look right as you know. With horses, however, I start with the muzzle and work my way up?!?! Not really sure why apart from it being my favourite part to draw - don't you just love their muzzles?
