Calf Portrait

Calf portrait

Traditional, graphite

I absolutely adore cows so when I saw the reference photo of the calf I was so inspired! I haven’t used graphite in a very long time as I’ve never been much of a fan of the medium but I’ve been converted.

Hugo the soldier

Hugo

Traditional, coloured pencil

Hugo is a lovely little chap who im sure you will agree looks rather dashing in his uniform. Hugo is owned by my lovely Auntie​. The first portrait I have done with a uniform and the first done using water as a blender for my coloured pencils, but I’m really pleased with the outcome. I hope it wont be the last I really enjoyed doing this.
