I have 5 commissions lined up and 4 for competition winners.

One of the competition winners sent me this photo



For the past hour now I have been telling her I just can't draw from this, but she is insisting!

Did you agree to do a human, too? That's a lot of work. Try drawing the horse only, remove the tack and the human. It might work. But one can see NO detail of the horse's head.

I told the woman there is no way I can draw from that photo!

I havn't drawn for a couple of weeks now, college work and my personal life is really taking over. I know the clients are probably hating me right now, but I really can't help it. College work comes first right?


Here are the commission referance photo's I need to get done (eventually!)

Bambi (A3 in charcoal)




Baxter (A4 in pencil)




I don't know this Jack Russels name, but yeah... (A5 in charcoal)




Jessie (I am really struggling with this one, so any help would be much appreciated!) (A3 in pencil)




And here are the ones I have to do for a charity competition type thing

Toffee (A3 in charcoal)








Willson (A4 in pastel)




I went on eBay and bought myself 36 pastel pencils for £25 So now I can try and work with those too. I'm really excited, and I figured the parrot was a fantastic subject to start with the colours, he's so beautiful!

My goodness you are busy! Best of luck, can't wait to how they come along.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky
