Started this pastel portrait today of my son Thomas (at 7 months old). I've always wanted to draw this particular photo as he had such bright eyes. It's off to a good start I think, still lots to do. I am only using two colours for this portrait, black and white

Finally got a chance to sit down and try out my new oil paints, a study of a grape and apple. I did these on canvas paper which is great for practicing without ruining a whole canvas. I quickly realised the paint brushes I have aren't very good but I still managed to do an ok job.

Managed to finish Woodley this afternoon, just in time as I am going interstate tomorrow for a week so I really wanted it done. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It certainly is time consuming drawing dog fur with coloured pencils but I enjoyed it.

Started Woodley's portrait today in coloured pencil on grey pastel paper. I chose grey because I thought his gold fur would show up better on it than white paper. The eyes are basically done, more work needed on the nose and mouth and then I have to tackle the hard part, the fur! I'm happy with the way it's looking so far, definitely have a likeness already.
