      Thank you again!
      The sheep are Swaledale - a friend loves them, so asked me to draw them..

              Just realised that I was giving out-of-date prices...

              I'm now selling the "stock" drawings, like for example this badger...
              IMG_4658.JPG
              ...for £25, plus £1.50 p&p.

              Commissions cost more - because there is more pressure in the drawing, and the result has to look like your Rex, rather than like any collie. I sometimes have to do two attempts before I am happy with the finished drawing - that I have managed to capture the "essence" of the subject. Often more work too, there can be up to 5 hours of work involved.
              IMG_4552.JPG (A recent drawing of a client's dog). So they are £40, with the same p&p.

              The drawings are on A5 size cartridge paper, and in lightfast, but not waterproof, ink.

                    DSCI0002 (16).JPG

                    Based on an Art Deco tea set design.

                    Ignore the shadow up the centre, that's just a stick supporting it for the picture.

                    9.5 by 12.75 inches.

                    £125 plus post, packaging and insurance.
