Dog Portraits, Ruby the black labrador


Well I'm back to my old tricks of jumping around again, swapping from piece to another after I said I wouldn't. However this time it wasn't my idea! This is Ruby and she is to be a birthday present for a date very soon and as the other portraits are not due yet I am able to fit this one in and I have been quite good and carried on with Charlie's portrait too and I can post that as soon as I get a chance.
I've also removed the other reference images in a bid to speed up my blog but also to make me concentrate on one thing at a time (unless another short deadline appears of course!)

Plus here are a few photos I took from the view point at Symonds Yat Rock where we were working at the beginning of the week.


If you like my work please take the time to leave me a comment or become a follower. If you would like to win a pet portrait of your dog, cat, horse or any other pet please see my new competition. The competition has closed for this year but there will be a new one in 2010. Join in the fun and vote for this year's winner by following the links here.

If you are interested in commissioning me please visit my pet portrait artist website or my wildlife artist website
Now visit my picasa photo album to see completed pieces of art.

Thanks for visiting!

Wow Karie-Ann I've been catching up with you! Besides posting what is going to turn out to be an incredible drawing, it was so nice to read the histories of all those creatures you've rescued. When I win the jackpot, I'm going to buy a farm and do the same! And it looks as though the snow has gone!!
