See Spot

I love the negative space in this drawing! The white paper provided the perfect base and is a powerful contrast to the dark details. In some ways it was a struggle to not touch the white paper and add more pencil markings. This was an exercise in self-restraint. Of course the black spots required numerous […]

This was a very fun pet portrait!  On the left, the dog laying down had light creams, tans, and subtle shades of grey throughout her fur, which was a wonderful mix of long hairs along her ears and shorter fur on her legs. As a whole, her soft delicate fur was a joy to draw. […]

Pet Portrait – Sneak Peek

So many orders, so little time. Here’s a sneak peek at one of the latest drawings. There’s something so exciting about the sneak peek!

From afar, the portraits […]
