Hi, I've just looked at all the pictures you have drawn and I think you are amazingly talented! And you are so kind to draw pictures for people. Now you have really inspired me to be an animal artist. I do a few drawings my self but they are no way near as good as yours! :)
Anyway, I would be so pleased if you could draw me a coloured picture of these new forest ponies, I saw on holiday. I can't decided which one for you to draw so I'll put a couple up and you can pick.
Thank you so much for inspirering me and thank you even more if you do the drawings xx

First of all, I LOVE your acrylic paintings!!! I dabble in acrylics a little myself and I like how you tape off the main subject so you can do the background first. I was just cuirous what kind of tape you use and how you go about cutting it without damaging the canvas. How do you cut the tape so precisely? Can you see the sketch beneath the tape? I have an acrylic commission coming up and would love to try that taping technique.

Well, it's a little tricky cutting it on stretched canvas' because they have no back, but I just use an exacto knife (you can also buy artisit knives but they're pretty much the same thing as an exacto) & be very careful. On canvas boards it's not so bad.
As for tape, I usually use the thinner masking tape but because im out right now im using painters tape (the stuff you use when painting walls lol). It sticks well, cuts easy but doesn't leave the glue behind unless of course you leave it on for months!
If you get the uncolored stuff you can see the sketch underneith, which makes it easier to cut ;)
