New Work




It's been a few days since my last posting due to work and family commitments, but here is my new WIP, no prizes for guessing its a head portrait of a Zebra! I have shown progress over three days, with a close up of the eye area showing the indenting technique used for the eye lashes, drawn on mellotex paper, size when completed will be approx 8 x 5 inches.

Oh wow Grahame. This is coming along great. love the eye detail and the lashes. I'm sure this will be as interesting as the workshop with Mike which was a fantastic piece.
