Pet Prep



I have been commissioned to paint a portrait of the Pet of the Year from the competition ran in the Cambs Times newspaper. Last Friday I collected the photos and I've been so busy that all I'd managed until last night was a quick 'getting to know you' sketch in my small watercolour moleskine journal.

Last night I managed to start my drawing and prime a canvas, this morning I added a cool glaze to the canvas to provide me with a good background colour before my student arrived.
I'm hoping to complete my drawing and transfer onto my canvas later tonight but for the rest of today I'm all Harry's!

They made a wise choice for this commission, Anita! The sketch is great...I'll be anxious to see the painting when it's finished!

You have captured a dog with lots of personality, great work as always.
