Cassius by AmandaDrage Cassius by AmandaDrage
I've decided to try my hand at the pet portrait market, seeing as I don't seem to have found the market for my equine art just yet ;)
I am opening 8x10" coloured pencil and pastel portraits on velour paper, priced at £65. This is an example, ready to be framed and displayed at my upcoming show on Saturday, and subsequent shows etc.

Hope you like it :)

edit: This is more for getting commissions through my art stalls and shows, of course you can contact me here if you would like one anyway, but this isn't a call to ask you guys to commission me!! I'm just showing you the drawing :)

I am terrible at counting :lol: I would estimate around 8-10hours for an 8x10" like this. :)

I love your artwork! This one looks just like my dog Kaly :)
I wish I could draw like you! They really come to life!
I only manage black and whites, but i love drawing...
Especially dogs, cats and horses.

:hug: Thank you for the lovely comment :) Black and white drawing can often be more effective than colour ;)
