From Life or Photo?

Painting from life is full of unexpected things happening, as this sketch of Missy's ear, eyebrow and eye show........

So, if you're not brilliantly quick on the draw, wait until your pet is asleep....

otherwise, use a judiciously taken photo to create your masterpiece

As you can see, I am not an artist who sticks to "life" only. I do use photos where it will give me a better painting than scrabbling around after a favourite dog! But I also draw daily - but usually items that don't move :)


  1. Missy, you look so pretty, awake or asleep. :O)

  2. The last painting of Missy is beautiful. It really captures her expression.
