Jura & Skye

Another double commission complete :)

These two lovely dogs, Jura the Lab and Skye the Spaniel are owned by a lovely gentleman from my home town, who owns Waltons of Hawes check out his website
Jura & Skye

A lot of hours went into these especially the Spaniel, those ears were a struggle I could even see curls when I closed my eyes! It is important for me to get the eyes just perfect as thats what brings the dogs to life, I was particularly pleased with Jura's left eye you can see his emotion and personality through it. 

My next two commissions are both Spaniels so bring on the ears! I will try and keep you posted although I have gone back to Uni now, so finding the time is a bit of a struggle hopefully I'll be able to fit a few hours drawing in when I can

Bye for now xx

Lifespan is holding it’s 6th Art Exhibition which will culminate in an Auction at The Biscuit Factory, Stoddart Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne at 7 pm on Thursday, 4th October 2012. 

The charity Lifespan, is a small North East charity providing a range of services to bring ease and support to people with serious and life-threatening illness and to the family members and friends who care for them. 

The patients are often nearing the end of their lives, suffering from such illnesses as cancer and motor neurone disease. 'At the heart of our work are the needs of each individual patient and family. We see seriously ill people in the comfort of their own home or other appropriate setting.'

I have donated an original pencil drawing entitled 'Highland Cow' to this great cause, it can be viewed in the catalogue at slot 9. 
I wish the charity the best of luck- let the bidding commence!!
