I have been anxiously waiting to share these finished drawings with you, and even gave you a few sneak peeks at them while in progress here and nearly finished here. My darling friend Amanda McNair commissioned them for her grandfather; her request was for “two graphite drawings of antlered animals,” making her easily one of the most trusting and enthusiastic clients I’ve ever have the pleasure of working for. It was an honour to create these detailed animal portraits for my beloved friend, and it seems that we both couldn’t be happier with the results! I’m looking forward to seeing a photo of her and her grand-pops smiling next to them, once they’re all framed up and hung in his house.
Today I finished the two 11″ x 14″ graphite pencil drawings that were commissioned by my most wonderful friend Amanda Mcnair. I’m sure you’ve been itching for me to share more, since first getting to peek at them mid-month, but I can’t show you them in their entirety yet, as that privilege belongs to miss Amanda. However, I wil let you have another little peek at a few finished details. I’m looking forward to seeing her reactions, as well as sharing the full view of them both with you, come early May when I get to drop them off personally to her.
