Yay! This time a coloured pencil sketch took my fancy. I had a bit of spare time lately so filled it by working on this portrait of my other lovely little grandson. Haven't done much work with colour and I'm not entirely happy with this one as I think I started off with the wrong base colour for his hair. But considering it's the first coloured pencil sketch I've ever done, I'm pretty happy with it. This one took me a month so I'm cutting my turnover time for my work by quite a lot! I think the next one I try will be just graphite and I'll concentrate more on getting the BEST reproduction of features I possibly can. Watch this space! :o)

For Rhys on his birthday

Well it's only taken me one whole year to get this piece finished, and just in time for Rhys' 7th birthday. Lucky for me he's still into Scooby Doo and was delighted with it. Pointilism is so time consuming. Tony has framed it using a dark charcoal mat board and simple satin black frame. It looks awesome [thanks Tony!] and I know Rhys will treasure it.

Now the next question is....what to work on next?
