Last week I finished this portrait of Emma. Her owners wanted this portrait of her because she was very ill at the time. While I was working on the painting I got the message that her condition was so bad, that they've decided to let her go... I hope this painting will give them comfort.

I renewed my site! Not so much the content, but the platform it runs on. Of course I updated my portfolio and these are shown in a great, new slideshow. Take a look and let me know what you think (the site is in Dutch but the photos will speak for itself):

Same material, another animal

I tried another animal portrait with the same 'Sketch & Wash' pencil. 
Next one will be a cat... I think.

Sketch & Wash

Last time we were in the States, I bought myself a 'Sketch & Wash' pencil: some sort of graphite pencil. After applying the graphite, you can add water to create a more watercolor effect and it deepens the black tones of the graphite. I tried this out on a quick sketch of Max - the loveliest dog I've ever met.

Size: 22 x 30 cm

I have been too occupied with creating ATCs that I hardly have time to do other art... but during my last drawing classes I did this watercolor painting of some pinecones. I found the branch in the woods last year and kept it for a long time. It's 22 x 30 cm.

Tiger in pastel

Finally I finished this portrait of the tiger - it must have been in my 'on my desk' column for some time now :)

New technique

This week I tried a new technique for creating ATCs: metal foil and acrylics.
In the picture you'll see the two ATCs (scanned), and I took a photo so you can get an idea of the shininess of these ATCs.
