    The commissions are great to keep a bit of income coming in and I enjoy doing them, but I REALLY love working on my own pieces because it lets me loosen up and have a little bit of artistic license.
    I know exactly what you mean!

    I must say though, I have a couple of commissions coming up that I'm really looking forward too. I have a beautiful looking dog with the most wonderful colouring for a forum member, and a large scale portrait of an Arabian show horse, with 4 separate images of the horse as a foal and being shown in hand.
    Should be fun!!
    But to even those out, I've got a couple of real doozies where I am having to mix and match more than 5 photographs that show the horse/dog so far away, at awkward angles, out of focus etc. *gulp*

    I thought you were kidding when you said people send you out of focus, pixely pictures because I felt a little bad sending you about a dozen pictures.

    Nope not joking in the slightest!!! You should see another dog that I've got... I'm putting it off because I just have no idea how I'm going to do it :S

    A dozen pictures is fantastic, it helps me out immensely and your were all good photo's so I've got some great references to work from.
    The better the photo's, the better the portrait as I can take so much more detail from it ;)

    Well well well! I am on quite a high after an email I received last night.
    An Olympic/WEG/German based Dressage rider has ordered a portrait of her 2008 Olympic mount, and potentially her current top performing GP horse who is also one of the top 'modern ' Dressage studs at this point in time.

    What a brilliant promotional opportunity for me, as well as the honour of being given the chance to draw such well known horses.

    A beautiful dog headed to a forum member in the US - I had fun with this one!

    That is just amazing - honestly I don't know how you do it. I couldnt believe how difficult using pastels would be - my first effort is screwed up and in the bin and not got the courage to try again yet!!!

    Jaydee, keep plugging away!! They're not an easy medium but if you can get the knack of them they are absolutely addictive!
    Thank you for the great feedback - I hope his owner gets a kick out if seeing the real thing when it arrives :)
