    Many, many portrait sketches = lots and lots of art to create this week!

    Here’s what’s on my easel:

    500badgersketch.jpg

    Badger is a certified therapy dog, she is allllways happy. I love that she’s smiling for her portrait. This will be an 8×8 oil portrait.

    500morrissketch.jpg

    This is Morris, an orange tabby who recently crossed over the rainbow bridge.  He’ll also be done in oils, on a 6×6 canvas.

    500calliesketch.jpg

    I’ve painted Callie before, but this portrait of her will have much more meaning since it is in loving memory.  Another 6×6 oil portrait.
    500simbasketch.jpg

    Simba is a stunning orange tabby. Also in oil on 6×6 chunky wrapped canvas.

     

    500kiwisketch.jpg

    This yellow-sided green cheeked conure is Kiwi, she’s also having a 6×6 oil portrait. Kiwi and Boo (below) belong to Lisa’s daughter – these are a birthday surprise. So ssssh.

    500boosketch.jpg

    Boo was a beautiful parrotlet that passed away, her portrait pairs with Kiwi’s in 6×6.

    500clairesketch.jpg

    This pose of Claire is just gorgeous, big curls falling down into her face – this is the line drawing for a 4×6 graphite drawing that All Adither won in January for giving me the bestest birthday wish.

    Lisa, I am still sad about Boo, too. I think it’s neat that you’re doing this for M – she’ll be so surprised!

    Though all the drawings express talent; I’m always ‘drawn’ to the people portraits the most. The child is adorable.
