Animal Portraits, Jimmy


This is Jimmy's portrait almost finished now. This is to be framed so I may have to remove add some of the cushion to fit it nicely into a mount and frame. It is pretty awful trying to take photos with the poor lighting (I know I keep on about it) but my new daylight bulb isn't really too good. I did have a rather expensive one before which I managed to smash with my head when I leant over to pick up something and ended up with bits in my hair so I bought another version but they aren't a patch on the first type so now I have an internet search on to get the same brand again!
Talking of art problems, my electric pencil sharpener has just about bitten the dust, I stupidly decided to sharpen a pastel pencil and it just destroyed it. oh well more shopping to do! And as I'm online I may as well order some replacement pencils, this ingres paper is eating up my pencils so fast I'm reduced to stubs of some!!!
I've also made a fantastic start with Bonnie's portrait and provided the light is better than today, I should be able to post an update tomorrow (I may well post a quick update on Facebook so do look on there if you want a sneak preview)
