This is Angel. Her owner asked for her to be drawn floating on a cloud. I visited Angel at home and took a series of reference photographs of this delightful girl, drew some sketches of different options then worked up the chosen piece. This is drawn in chalk pastel on blue pastel paper.
As a way to show off my skills at portraying different animals in just one picture, I created this image. The background features the view from the field opposite my home, of the fields towards Firle Beacon and Mount Caburn. The animals are all based on commissions I have done in the past with the addition of a few extras such as the sheep, rabbit and a cheeky little mouse.
This is painted in acrylic on board and is available as a greetings card – currently on sale at Ooh Art gallery in Lewes.
