Jude & Al’s portrait

From my blog you’d think I haven’t done much work lately and only post sketches to cat-of-the-day, but this impression is partly because I’ve completed two commissioned portraits this year which had to remain sectet. One of them can now be revealed! THis is Jude and Al, and their dog Star. In pencil and gold leaf, and the composition designed for an oval frame. As you might expect, people don’t generally ask me to draw or paint their portrait unless they have something special in mind.

  1. Absolutely wonderful! They must all be thrilled (including Star).

    We are thrilled, Star always comes out on top, so this is true to life from that point of view! Now hanging in our “goth” dining room, along with quite alot of other Nancy Farmer,s! Thank you again, total surprise for Al’s big 50!

    1. Very pleased to hear it went down well! xx
