As Christmas approaches and I have nearly completed my current pet portrait in pastel I have been thinking of how to promote my portrait commission work as a special gift. In this post you will see the "before" & "after" collages, a glimpse of this pet portrait commission showing attention to detail plus linktree links. Have a great day and if you want a commission done, you know who to ask! 😁
This blog talks about choices to be made on artwork subject matter as well as where from, and why, I chose a hedgehog. It also talks about alterations made to the reference photo as well as how I corrected a mistake made during its creation. I also mention details of the exhibition in September. I hope you find this of interest.
When a friend visited me during the Out of the Hills exhibition and asked if I could make a card of the duckling that was for sale there, it reminded me of the ducklings I had created in the past ( 4 of which have sold ) and I thought I'd share them with you. And of course we created some cards for our friend too....
I have been pleased with the outcome of the Out of the Hills art exhibition, given the current economic climate - I ended up selling two paintings and three prints as well as 30 cards. It was also interesting meeting people while stewarding at the event, and watching them as they moved around the gallery space, seeing what caught their eye. With 11 different styles and media on offer they had plenty to explore. Very interesting and enjoyable experience.
This blog shows the elephants I chose, as well as the colours, size and composition of the artwork. There are photos of me selecting, blending and experimenting with colours and shades of soft pastel and pastel pencils. I hope you find it of interest!
