Basset hound - wip


an update - the back not being the most interesting part, still have to work your best at if of cause - but I cannot wait to get down to those folds on the legs and ... the paws !! I love dogpaws

Basset hound wip



I am working on a graphite drawing of a basset hound. I took the ref-photo at the Danish Kennelclub yearly Dogs day last year. I think he is cute and he is fun to draw. The drawing will be a nearly fullbody drawing - he is sitting - with no background. Size approx. 16,5 x 21 cm on Daler Rowney.

Weddingcoach horse


This is the remaining part of a larger painting. I started in watercolors but felt the whole thing looked too flat. I then reworked a bit with colored pencils and acrylic paint.
Originally there was 2 horses, but I managed to destroy no. 2. Instead I have a small painting of this horse.
I took the ref-photo in Austria, where they pulled a weddingcoach

Big Boy - Great Dane


I have started a new journey with this painting, as it is in acrylics. I've had my paint and brushes waiting a long time, only done a few tests untill this one. So I am not sure how this will progress.
I took the ref-photo at a dog-show. I had never seen this coloring on a great dane before, in danish it is called "platten-hund" (from german). The dog is almost white only with a few large black spots (not like a harlequin-colored with many small spots).
I think my title Big Boy suited him very well.
The size is A4 (21 x 29,7 cm), and I suppose I should have started on a larger support, but that'll be for the next one.
