Dog Portraits, german shepherd



I've had a lazy weekend in terms of portraits and this is as much as I have completed.
I've now got myself organised and have sorted out my commissions and have suddenly realised I need to kick myself hard to get on with them, otherwise as usual I'll be panic and manic to get them all done for the dates required.

Dog Portraits, german shepherd


This is my latest graphite portrait of a german shepherd. As you can see my image editing has slightly improved and I am now able to remove any shadows or 'grey bits' surrounding portraits (at long last, yippee) so hopefully my progress shots and final images will be a lot more professional looking!!!

Dog Portraits, Oakley


Bit of an update on Oakley. Christmas is fast approaching and I'm now pretty booked up so will need to sort myself out with an order of play as such to ensure all are completed in time. I've already managed to sell some gift certificates as the orders are from people who cannot get hold of photographs so want the recipient to choose their own favourite images. I've also been out meeting some clients and their pets and was able to take my own photos, this are the best commissions as I get to meet the subject in the flesh and see their personalities as they run around and pose for me.

I've also started a german shepherd portrait and will also be starting the spaniel portrait mentioned in my last post.

And here is the latest deer seen in our woods, this one was a little camera shy but did manage to stand still long enough for me to take a photo, as soon as it heard the camera click though it sped off through the trees and out of sight.

Dog Portraits, Oakley


I've started work on Oakley, the huge fluffy leonberger. I've met Oakley many times and despite his size he is really very soft. Willow is a little in awe of him as he's just a tad bigger than she is and she does like to be the biggest....lots of biscuits to get that size though!
I'm also about to start another graphite portrait, this time of a springer spaniel so I may have something to post on that pretty soon.

Dog Portraits, Barney



Here is Barney completed, along with a couple of little drawings in the lower corners.


And here he is framed.
As per usual, the photos maybe a little shadowed in places. At some point I will learn how to edit them properly!
