I’m hare again! Back to work. New art work in progress- Kissing Hares!

Featured

Hi, it’s been a long while since I last posted, but I’m now back in my studio and sketching away. My last piece ‘Horace’ found a new home the very next day after he was framed,

Imagehere he is:Image

He will be appearing on my website as a print for sale very soon. (only 50 prints and several have sold already!) He was a popular chap, a bit scruffy, but a lovely character to work on. I’ll let you know when he’s up and then you can look at the detail and say hello to him.

So to keep me company in Horace’s absence, I’m ¬†creating two more hares: I don’t know their names yet, as I get to know them better I’ll find out their names .

I’ve done some preparatory sketches and ¬†started on the ink work. The sketches are just a warm up exercise in pencil, they are very rough and I use them to get to know the angles and what the challenging parts of the piece might be, plus I work on the positioning on the page and the composition.

Then as usual I begin with the eye- the window to the soul, and the characters start to emerge- hopefully! Heres todays effort. Hope you like it- obviously it needs a lot more work yet!Image

Pretty please! Vote for me and ‘Horace’ the hare!
I’ve been lucky to have been shortlisted for ‘Up and Coming Artist 2014′ by the Fine Art Trade Guild which is a national organisation based in London. It’s just such wonderful news, but I can’t go any further without your votes. The winner is determined by votes from the public and then the Guild Committee make the final decision. It really would mean an awful lot for Horace and me if you’d vote for us.
Please spread the word and share- if you really want to support us please ask everyone you know to vote for us too.
Thank you so much for your continued support.
Thanks Cheri and Horace.
