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.

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

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.

I am very proud, that my colored pencil drawing "Leading Pair" was chosen to Ann Kullbergs new book "Colored pencil secrets for succes" that has just been released. Ann Kullberg being one of the top-famous cp artists in the US, gives my drawing a honest and fair critique in her book.
