Re: Best of Show 2011

I completed this in early 2011, whilst I have done a few this year that I think come close this was one of the first that I was very pleased with. at this point I had been drawing less than a year

A4 Size, Graphite or course with a charcoal base overlaid with graphite to get the background.

Re: Best of Show 2011

I drew this in 2011...using charcoal paper and erasing out the highlights. Titled "Why?"

Re: Best of Show 2011

I did this as one of my final pieces for an animal portrait course. The reference was a photo which I took myself of a lovely tiger in Dublin zoo who seemed happy to pose for me. It is mainly pastel pencils on suede matboard and I'm quite happy with it!

Otters, not the best I've done this year, but my favorite because it kept me entertained during lots of time in doctors' waiting rooms.

Re: Best of Show 2011

I consider this drawing the best I have made in 2011
I usually draw or paint animals, this was something completely different and fun to find out that I was able to draw this too

Re: Best of Show 2011

This I was drawing for my Nana - before I was able to give it to her, she took a turn for the worse and died shortly afterwards. This drawing is very precious to me.
Prismacolor pencils on Ampersand Pastelbord. 11x14 (I think).

Re: Best of Show 2011

A quick study of my best friend (my wife) this past summer, in a small sketch book. Turned out to be my favorite for the year.

Have a blessed day all.
