So, as you can see, I'm not overly prolific. I do work full time, and my artwork is very much a part time thing I do for fun. I am intending on entering a competition and an exhibition this year, but am not intending on going professional. One, I don't think I'm up to scratch yet, and two, I really do want this just to be something relaxing. I have drawn something for someone else, but didn't enjoy it as the subject matter didn't appeal to me - this is why I don't want to do commissions :D It takes all the fun away!

Anyway, here is the latest picture I have finished. It's a reference photo from Stock Exchange, by ltshears.

I'm pretty sure I'm starting to develop a "style" - not sure how I feel about it yet, it's definitely not the realism I intended to pursue at first. On the other hand, I'm not sure if I have the patience to put in the hours required for photo-realistic work!

So, now to find my next piece...

Hi Dee
I found my way to you via Wendy's blog. I'm alao a relative beginner - I actually started at the end of 2003 but did very little to begin with and then had a shoulder injury which put me out of action as far as drawing ws concerned for 18 months. I began again seriously last October. I love your lion and snow leopard. I've not been brave enough to tackle the big cats!
My blog is at
all the best

I am just about to go and check out your blog, thank you so much for stopping by. I'm definitely not someone who's going to be posting everyday, but I hope you check it out occasionally :)
