In this video I show you how I created my drawing “Companionship” in coloured pencil in a fully voiced-over format. Still getting used to talking to an imaginary audience but I guess I’ll get there with practice!
Editing blooper! I didn’t notice there were repeated lines in my audio until after I had uploaded to youtube. Thought I had deleted them all before processing my video! Hopefully I get better at using Adobe Premiere with time xD

I’ve been in a bit of an art slump recently after accidentally throwing tea all over this commission and having to start on it all over again! I hate it being so delayed (It was meant to be a Christmas gift! D: ) but now that I pushed through my slump and finished it, in a way I’m glad I spilt tea on the old version despite my embarassment. I think the portrait turned out for the better in the end! I really love this piece, I think the sheen on Mini’s fur came out really well without being too obtrusive. 🙂
Tools used: Caran d’Ache Grafwood pencils, AIN 4B 0.5mm lead, one Faber Castell 9000 8B pencil, Fabriano Artistico HP Watercolour Paper
Another Christmas commission to share with you all! This one is of a very sweet and cheeky cat called Angie. It was quite a small portrait (A5 sized) so it was a challenge to get all the little details in but I really enjoyed making this one. No step-by-step for you to see this time… Continue reading Meow! “Angie” commissioned portrait in graphite
Last week I finished a graphite portrait of a gorgeous, sweet old dog called Moses as a gift for my client’s sister.

I went on holiday to south Spain with my family last week so the updates have been a little on the quiet side, but I’m back in chilly old England now so I can get back to finishing that german shepherd portrait! I also took plenty of photos while I was in Spain including numerous… Continue reading Spain adventures and a new coloured pencil work!
It was a productive day all around on Friday! Not only did I finish my Knobbed Hornbill portrait in coloured pencil, but I also finished my graphite portrait of Toto, my siamese cat, too! I’ll be getting it framed soon and will be hanging it on my bedroom wall 😀
