BUSY week so not managing to get much time, if any, at the drawing board and I have lots to be getting on with too. My boy’s 21 on Friday and a fair bit of organising is going on for that so a good excuse I think for not working. But I have put another drawing on Ebay (see above) and this one is a personal favourite of mine – just love the expression on this Weimaraner. 

Bidding for ‘Seriously!’ ends in 5 days – how can you refuse that face.

My latest portrait off the drawing board is Ella, an adorable Cocker Spaniel. Think I’ve drawn more Cocker Spaniels over the years, besides Labradors of course, than any other breed of dog – and that’s lots of curly ears!

The Greeting
24cm x 24cm
Graphite Pencil

Thought I would dip my toes into the world that is Ebay. It is something I have considered doing on and off for a long time and if anything, it is a different avenue for me to explore with my drawings. It might work and it might not, nothing lost. So after what felt like forever registering and finding my way about Ebay I now have my first drawing, ‘The Greeting’, listed. And I have bids! Quite exciting this auctioning business but then I do admit to being easily amused :-)

If you fancy placing a bid click here to go to my listing. It’s a great opportunity to own an original at a one off price. Bidding ends in 6 days – go on, you know you want to.

New drawing

Pep Talk
34cm x 22cm
Pencil on Bristol Board

I don’t get a chance to go to the races often but when I do I always have my camera with me ready to take as many photos of the horses as I can in the hope I’ll get some good ones to work from. I don’t have the powerful zoom lenses (yet!) to allow me to get some good action shots of the race itself so spend most of my time at the parade ring. My drawing ‘Pep Talk’ is from one such visit. I started this one back in February, put it to one side while I worked on other drawings, and only got round to finishing it recently.
