Sleeping beauty

Today I finished this drawing of sleeping hamster Bella Nottes Amaretto, which I was commissioned to do.

Pastel, 20 x 30 cm

  1. This is absolutely beautiful. Your technique is exquisite!

    Have a great week.

  2. So lovely and soft, I can imagine this little hamster having lovely dreams :-)


  3. So realistic! Absolutely beautiful!

  4. Wow! It looks great. I love the eyes. You really captured what a hamster looks like.

  5. Thank you so much for your comment. It is greatly appreciated. That comment was a definite surprise to me (I removed it from comments because it was so long and because they emailed me). I am truly honored that such an organization would consider me for their book cover.

    You have a great and wonderful day, my dear.

  6. Woow! You have captured the sleeping moment perfectly!

  7. Wonderful, Brigitte, so detailed and delicate...

    I know I've said this before, but you do beautiful animal portraits in pastel! :-)

  10. Lieve Brigitte.

    Wat een schattig hamstertje heb je weer getekend!
    Ik hoop dat dit berichtje doorkomt.
    Ik kijk elke keer op jou site of je weer wat nieuws hebt gemaakt.
    Tot zaterdag.

    Big Hug Mama Nel.

  11. Goed getekend Brigitte. Wat ligt hij er snoezig bij. Je ziet hem gewoon genieten en langzaam wegzakken in een diepe slaap.
    Mooi ook dat je de haartjes apart getekend ziet. Dan krijg je echt een vacht te zien.
