German Shorthair Pointer

German Shorthair Pointer, Stage 2
A Work in Progress

Still playing catch-up, so apologies for the late post. Going to jump straight in with Dutch Auction news to start with – ‘Intrigue’, I’m delighted to say, has been sold and is therefore no longer available leaving ‘Focused’ (£200), ‘Eye Contact’ (£145), ‘Morgan’ (£110) and ‘Inquiring Mind’ (£210) up for the taking. Prices have dropped another £20 and I know there are a few interests and people following so don’t leave it too late and perhaps lose out if interested in a piece.

Drawing board news now (very quickly) and a couple of in-progress images of what I’m currently working on. It’s a coloured pencil drawing of a gorgeous German Shorthair Pointer with lots still left to do. Busy, busy, busy:)

Congratulations on the sale.
The pointer is looking fantastic I like that you are including some of the body it adds a lot of interest.

Lovely start Laura. Seems ages since you've shown any coloured pencil work :o)

I'm really impressed with your ability to capture the light and texture of each animal so well. Would you explain your process a bit? I'm always looking to learn about how other people do what they do so that I possibly get better at doing what I do. Thanks.

Congratulations Laura on your sale. I love the way the pointer is coming out. I'm looking forward to seeing this one finished. Your work is amazing.

Thanks Gayle, delighted it's going to a good home. And still LOTS of body left to do:)

Thank you Sue, did take me a while to get used to my coloured pencils again as it's been so long:)

Hi Jeanne and thank you. Not sure I have a process or method as such - I literally jump right in and draw what inspires me at the time. I can be doing a little bit of the eye one minute and an ear the next followed by something else the next and back and forth like this until the drawing is finished. It is however something I've been asked before and I will definately try to break my process down into stages here on my blog soon:)

Thank you hmuxo:)

Thanks for addressing my comment. I'm so inspired by your artwork and your abilities. I'll look forward to learning more about how you work.

What I like most is that you seem somehow to capture the psychology as well as the physical image. Great work!
