Stepping Back; Done, Maybe?

I put this weekend to good use, feeling industrious and productive. I am so excited, I think it might just be done. Of course that depends if my client agrees. What do you think?

Early Bird

My starting point for this beautiful Saturday morning… yes the early bird does get the worm. The plan is to just keep going, lets see how far I can get today.

Remembering Cole, RIP

My dear friend had to say good bye to her fur baby Cole yesterday. My heart aches for her, he was such a sweet lovable dog. Thankful I was able to create this beautiful portrait.

Moving Pains & the Little Big Project

Recently we moved house… not something I recommend for the faint of heart. I love our new house and I also have my very own room for my studio with a view. Its wonderful. Right before the move I was commissioned for a challenging project. 2 dogs on a 8 x 10, black and white charcoal. It was tricky as the original photograph was low resolution. The portrait was a surprise so I have had to keep this one on the down low until it was revealed. It turned out amazing and I am so thrilled that my customers loved it especially since it was for someone I have known all my life. I will work on posting from beginning to finish so that you can see the process. What do you think of Sugar Babe and Bentley?

Marco Polo, Found You Cole

And here we go… As long as my customer loves this it is finished. I had a difficult time figuring out the right amount of detail, color (muted versus not), and how much to include of the sofa over all to not take away from Cole. He is just too beautiful, did not want to destroy the focal point with too much background. What do you think?

So Close, Background Yes or No?

So close. Cole is almost finished. Thank goodness, I worry this one has taken longer than it should. Partly because of the detail and also because of my shortage of time with a new baby. Hopefully I can finish this weekend. Now for the big question, does it need some information of the background? If yes than I am thinking a dulled brown or gray to bring in the arm of the chair that would help place Cole. What do you think?
