This week we have another piece of art from the Christmas period. These drawing were for grandparents to enjoy and drawn from family photographs taken by the client herself.
I used Bockingford hot pressed watercolour paper and fabercastel water soluble and polychromos pencils. I felt like I got to know these little cheeky faces really well over the festive period.

To match all this snow and cold weather in todays blog we have this lovely family making the most of the snowy conditions having a fish in this frozen lake.
The caricature was commissioned as a christmas card and was designed to include Alaska , igloos and ice fishing. But with todays weather I thought it would be appropraite .
Wrap up warm folks.
It is fantastic to be back to the picky pencil studio after a wee break to celebrate the festivities at the Elrick house hold and to say a big thank you to all the lovely clients I had the pleasure of working with throughout 2016 from photo realistic portraits, some of the cutest dogsI have seen in my life and some really fun requests for caricatures. In the next few blog posts I will look back to my favourite drawings created in the run up to the end of 2016 . Hope you enjoy them really excited to see what 2017 will reveal.
To start us off in 2017 I have a really fun Mary Poppin themed caricature which was commissioned as a birthday gift. This lovely lady shows highland cows in her free time and enjoys reading, football and the odd refreshment. All her friends agree that she is in fact practically perfect in every way.
