"Toby," sketch done in acrylic on bristol board, approximately 4" x 6" roughly centered on a 9" x 12" page, depiciting a Sheltie, commissioned and in a private collection (THANK YOU!).
I came into the studio in my jammies this morning and started sketching. It's been productive, going directly to the easel instead of the computer. My brain wasn't yet weighed down with a to do list - maybe this is the new routine I'm searching for.
If you want a commissioned sketch like Toby's, they are only available until the end of this year.
Don't know what the difference is between a sketch and a portrait?
A sketch is a small study, done with very loose brushwork, often enclosed in a rectangular form like the above piece. It is done on paper, and carries a generous margin on all sides.
A portrait comes in a variety of sizes and are done on museum quality panels. Portraits carry far more detail, realm of color, and complexity, like Toby's portrait below (from last week, an 8" x 10" painting on panel, this one's also sold).
Let me know if you would like either - but keep in mind that the sketch option will be gone before you know it.
Kim, who enjoyed a football and marching band and family filled weekend - hope you had a good one, too!!
