Inspired by a beautiful Oldenburger horse portrait this Bay horse is now one of my favourite pieces, painted in traditional Acrylic I love it and hope you will to. This is actually my first acrylic painting! I’ve tried this medium a few times but never clicked with it, I tried again recently and I’ve finally got the hang of it in fact I think I now love it!

This portrait is one that is so important to me I’ve had this incredible pup over 7 years and its about time she had her own portrait that really represented her. This is the first portrait I’ve ever done in this style so its extra special!

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.
