It’s been a busy week! I have been accepted to join Pyewhackett and Pecke‘s guild of esoteric artists (watch this space for more disturbing work!)
I also had a little flurry of ‘felt-painted’ pet portraits… these are essentially needle felt panels – I slowly layer colour and shade through many hours of ‘stabbing’ with a barbed needle – sometimes only adding one or two strands of coloured wool at a time! I then mount the finished work onto a canvas backing for hanging, the standard size is 8×8 inches, but I can do pretty much any size on commission – they are available here, email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org, all I require is a clear, in focus photograph of the pet in question!
Here is the recently completed Stanlee:
And his original photo:
And here is a little montage of the steps involved in creating a pet portrait, this one is Dexter the foal:
