Life Drawing

I recently attended a life drawing seasion at the Kumeu Arts Centre.  Having not done any since I was at University...(too many years ago now!!) was actually very very enjoyable and relaxing.

Long Shot

This painting called 'Long Shot' was a result of the interest I had in my solo 2012 show, Back Nine.  A cheeky little number!  It sold within a week so unfortunately you can only see it here.

Another commissioned Little Lady Portrait

I met the most delightful couple a few months ago at a charity event, and chatting to the husband, he said he would really like a painting for his wife for her upcoming birthday.  He was secretly going to commission a portrait of her 'babies', Harriet and Hugo, 2 beautiful King Charles Spaniels.  His wife, being very savvy, cottoned to his secret plan, and decided to change the painting to a more personal piece.  Being the funniest person I have met in a long time, and having very similar creative interests to me, it was lovely to work together to develop a wonderful painting based on all the things she loved and all the interests she had.

I am so pleased with the finished piece and more importantly, so very chuffed that the client absolutely adored her commission!!!
