No 2 Scottie Dog, Conte and Charcoal on Drafting Film

I received some great feedback about one of my Scottie drawings at the weekend, have been continuing to make dog pieces this week whilst working on updating my online stores at Artfinder and Redbubble.  

I also have a number of pictures on display and for sale at Moar for your Home in Kintore.

Prices from only £60 onwards for a small piece and you can see some of the pieces on their Facebook page.

Here is a wee scruffy scottie dog, they are such expressive little characters, this wee guy is also available to buy.  

As always I am happy to deal direct and avoid any additional shipping and commission charges for the customer.

Drafting Film Arrives

Well my order of A3 drafting film arrived it's nice & thick and I can't wait to get working on it.

I'm making a series of dog pictures for sale to go up north later on in the summertime. 

The film is mounted onto paper or board using a Golden Acrylic medium.  It is a lovely surface for conte & charcoal, I've used acrylics too and they work well and I will give the oils a try too going forward.

Here's a wee work in progress for you...



Ink and Line Drawing - Self Portraits

I've been cracking on with some oil paintings this week but after doing some ink drawings at life class I've been carrying on from that by trying to do a few ink drawings every day.  

Here are a couple of ones that I quite like posted below.  I had some sticks but picked up a proper reed pen, which is rather nice to use.  It's been a while since I drew with line predominantly but I have been enjoying the change.  Will post any other drawings I make going forward that I like to this gallery below.
