Family Tree commission

Today I've made a start on my latest commission - a family tree.  I've been sent 14 profile photographs and my task is to put them into a tree, together with a baby in a hanging crib and the family cat.

Here is my initial drawing.  I have decided on the placement of the portraits and now I've got the fun part of drawing in all the leaves, birds, names and any other little critters that take my fancy!  Should be a fun one.

Geese and Gosling commission

Sorry I haven't blogged for a while.  I was away for a month and prior to that I was super busy.

However, I have managed to do a commission for a lovely couple who are having their first baby any day now.  I was commission (in secret!) by the hubby to make the piece as a surprise for  his wife.  When it came to handing it over to him, he couldn't keep it a secret any longer and told his wife all about it.  Thankfully she was over the moon and they absolutely love it.

Here are some work in progress pics and the final piece.
