Couple of new pet portraits of a cat and dog

Got a couple new pet portraits for you! I’ve been crazy busy with portraits this year and will have all kinds of new portraits to show you after the first of the year. Unfortunately can’t show all of my portraits yet because customers are giving them as gifts for Christmas.

Cliff the cat – 9 x 12 inch colored pencil portrait

Really liked doing the texture in the fur. When doing the background used a pile of clothes for reference and then colored it that purplish pink color.

Louie – 5 x 7 inch colored pencil portrait

Fun little guy. Liked to play with his basketball so it was included in the portrait. Done a couple of the 5 x 7 size and surprised how much detail I can get in there.

Raccoon fishing illustration

raccoon_fishing_01s

Here is the newest illustration that I’ve finished. The illustration is done in colored pencil. The drawing came about just doing some sketches of raccoons. Was originally going for more of a head shot but ended up drawing the whole raccoon. Then decided on adding the log for the raccoon to sit on. Thought that the pose of the raccoon looked like he was trying to catch something so added the jumping fish. Below are some of the sketches that transformed the artwork into what it is.

New artwork and a WIP

Dutchess the cat11 x 14 colored pencil

Really like doing the cat portraits since most of the time will end up doing a dog portrait when commissioned to do a portrait. Had a wonderful picture to work from and enjoyed the detailed background

Canada Sunsetacrylic painting

This painting was done from a photo that I took up in Canada when I went fishing last year. Did the sky and the water in one setting and added some medium to keep it from drying to fast. Like the way it turned out but the photo of the painting doesn’t do it justice since the original looks so much better.

Canada duck WIP11 x 14 colored pencil

Working on this using another picture from the Canada fishing trip. The detail in the duck was overwhelming but it is turning out nice. Since this is not a commissioned artwork it will be available to purchase once finished.
