Jack Russell Terrier

A Work in Progress
Copyright Laura Hardie 2011

Have made a start on a new coloured pencil portrait of a very lively, so I’m told, Jack Russell Terrier. So lively that she wouldn’t stay still long enough to be photographed and ended up having to be held in the end. Even so I think the resulting photo is full of character and hope I can portray this in the finished portrait. Love her name too, Flea – seems just perfect for her somehow.

Moving onto the Dutch Auction - there are currently three drawings still available for purchase and they are ‘Focused’, now down to £140; ‘Eye Contact’, down to £85 and ‘Inquiring Mind’ at £150. As always, if you would like details or are interested in any of the above please email me.

The terrier is coming along well. I really like how well you capture the direction of the fur.
I've challenged myself to draw a bird each day this week. I've posted today's at The Noodle Factory blog, but I'm looking for suggestions as to what bird to draw tomorrow. I'd appreciate you and your readers stopping by to give me some ideas and maybe even follow along for the week.
