A4 Graphite Drawing (Maisey 2015)
I posted this portrait I did of my dog on my Facebook page in April 2015 – The response I got was amazing. I had only decided to get the pencils out again as it had been many years since I did my last pencil drawing. Due to the remarkable response, I have decided to offer graphite pencil drawings for pet portraits.
I am yet to update my gallery and advertise these drawings but there will be a fantastic introductory offer available while I build up my portfolio.
I will also be adding some wildlife graphite portraits to my collection ready for my exhibition in May 2016.
I say it a lot – but thank you to everyone who commissions portraits from me. It’s greatly appreciated and a massive privilege.
**** THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO VOTED ****
My tiger cub painting received the most votes in the competition I entered at my local gallery, Ace Framing and Art Gallery. I want to thank everyone who spared their time to go and vote for me. I really appreciate all your support.
Winning the competition has given me a massive opportunity as part of the prize is to have my own exhibition at the gallery! I will keep posting updates on my Facebook page when I know more on dates etc.
Now to crack on with my wildlife portfolio. Anybody who would like to purchase any of my work please don’t hesitate to contact me.
8″ x 10″ oil portrait on canvas.
The original portrait is available to buy. If you’d like to enquire about any of my wildlife paintings or to commission a pet portrait please get in touch via email or my Facebook page.
Here’s something I started working on this weekend. This photograph was taken once I had finished the first layer. At this stage I am just blocking in the main colours and once dry I can then begin to build up the layers and add all the fine detail.
Thanks to David Stribbling for the brilliant reference photograph.
Stage 1: I’m applying the base colours at the moment which provides depth when I begin to add the detail on later stages.
I’m really enjoying painting the closer faced shot and might have to do a few more after this one is finished!
I will post regular updates of the progress over the coming weeks.
