Sorry I am not managing to post very often, just about keeping on top of things, have thankfully finished my last pet portrait for a while, will post after Christmas as I don't want to risk spoiling my clients surprise (not likely but you never know!)
In between coursework I am trying to do some of my own stuff (art) without much success but did manage a couple of pencil sketches/drawings, this is one I did in the wee small hours, after not being able to sleep (would love a switch to turn off over active brain!!!!)
This is Sammy my little grandson in a not too typical pose as he is normally a sunny little character, but I did find this pic very interesting to draw, I do not do a lot of human portraits but found this a perfect de-stresser (is that a word?)

Hi Geraldine
I agree this is a great pose to work from - much more interesting than the usual posed smiley portraits that get commissioned at this time of year :o)
Lovely pencil work!

I love the expression on his face Geraldine maybe not typical but one of these fleeting glimpses into another facet of his character, certainly not "posed" and false looking.
Sounds like you need some space to chill out.........drawing and painting "for yourself" is always good therapy :-)

Glad you found time to do this one as it's so much more interesting than a typical child's portrait. Really lovely!
