Sorry I haven't blogged for a while, life has been rather hectic of late...
My last commission, was to do a 10 x 8" coloured- pencil portrait of a beautiful little girl and her grand-parents, for their 80th Birthday. It was then mounted and framed.
The family seemed delighted, which made me very happy- as the commissioner was a dear friend.
- I used a mixture of pencils- both Caran D'Ache and WH Smith (watercolour and blendable). I found the latter to be most preferable, both for colour and application.
- I used Fisher 400 Art Paper to work on. It's a fantastic 'ground', as the pencil easily adheres to the fine, sand- paper 'tooth' of the paper.
My next portrait is of a pretty cat, called Eliza, and is again in pencil. But, I can't decide whether to do it in black and white or colour...
