As of late, I have been accepting a more varied range of requests. This time last year, I was only truly comfortable with doing dog commissions – receiving a request to draw a cat had me quite on edge. Recently, however I had the opportunity to paint a horse; an animal known to be difficult to capture both in shape and also character.
Not only did I have the opportunity to expand my range of 'drawable' animals, but I was also given the chance to create these Paw-Traits with new, more intricate materials – both coloured pencils and acrylic paint. The latter of these materials were used in a personal experiment for my own benefit (it had recently occurred to me that I was going to art college in September with hardly any experience with painting in anything other than watercolours).
I now feel more than happy to create commissions in both of these two materials.
