Love me some animals.

Last month I did a flash pet portrait project where I accepted ten commissions. Normally I have a very hard time painting people's beloved pets but I felt I needed to overcome the challenge and make good work despite my own obstacles. Painting these lovelies was a great way to become more familiar with anatomy, pattern, type, and expression. I'll share a couple with you here, but you can view all the paintings on the gallery page. Each painting is 8x8", gouache and colored pencil on smooth bristol paper. 


Happy New Year! 

I am busy working on some larger projects which means I have to wait a bit to share them. In the mean time, I'll see if I can sneak away and draw some little things for me and for you.
