Tara and Pepsi Completed


Apart from signing it and a little tweeking that I may do tomorrow, this first commission is now finished, paper size is A3 actual drawing size is approx 11 x 8 inches, drawn on super white mellotex paper (which is actually a creamy white), using only 2H,HB, and 2B mechenicle pencils, I also made great use of Blue tac and my putty eraser for the highlights, drawing time approx 45 hours, all that's left to be done is to have it mounted and delivered to the client for her approval.

Beautiful work Grahame. I have two spaniels next on the agenda (pastel not pencil) so have all those curls to 'look forward to'.

I'll swap you for the horses :o)
