His beautiful singing lulls me to sleep at night and now his portrait is almost finished, just a few more days to work on his arms and some detailing and he will be done... hope he likes the result :)
My book is finally done and today the lovely Alicia King conducted a little interview with me (thank you Alica :)) where I got to spread the word about my fabulous furry and feathered friends.
My side table with brushes and wax paper I use for a disposable palette.
YIKES, can't believe I'm showing this but first sketch of the new guy.
I have often been asked how I go about creating my paintings, whether i copy things, how it all comes together........I would love to share.......I am going to post pictures of my newest guy as I paint his portrait and find out more about him. I'm not sure of his name but I met him last summer, briefly and I think I might see him again...........Here is a sketch of him from memory, I'm going to paint him with a stein of beer here as I think he might like that.................but anything is possible at this point :)
Here is my sketch:
