I started Large…A 16 x20 inch mounted pencil portrait…….to give extra detail! Sometimes, as an artist…it’s just nice to touch base with the simpler things in life, like a piece of paper and a pencil! 🙂 Though, the paper is of the exquisite kind – 100% cotton, rough grade 140lbs/300g/sq m which I thinks added a lot of texture to the finished pieces!
Recently, I did a little gift swap with another WP blogger, MRS. P, From the wonderful craftodessey!
Part of it was for a little requested pencil sketch of my adorable heritage bunny, which Mrs P had insisted I must have (who was I to pass up such an opportunity ???)……….. when it arrived – with a surprise unexpected little companion, knitted Lamb! My little bunny was given to me with a lovely letter telling me about her history. She was sent to be my new apprentice from the Workhouse. If you are new to all of what is going on here?? then a couple of links might help;
The two little sketches I did for Mrs. P of her lovingly handmade and gifted (to me) knitted bunny, Wallis Russell and Lamb. Which The RM Postie delivered just yesterday as her surprise 🙂
Carried away by the moment – I seem unable to stop at the one I first thought I would do…..After all it is always nice to get an extra surprise!! 😀
….and so the sketches continue 😉
Watch this space for more tiny and large Wallis and Lamb portraits!
