Christmas Cheer

December 21, 2010

This is a little Christmas commission I’ve just completed for an old friend as a surprise gift for his lovely wife.  Their colourful costumes have helped get me in a more festive mood, I might even stop complaining about the snow!  I really enjoyed doing this one and I hope the boy’s Mum likes it too.

The drawing is just over A4 and was done using polychroma pencils on light tan mounting board.



  1. Lovely ! Am sure your friend was thrilled with this.
    I am trying to persuade Stewart to continue with portraits. He does some great stuff in pastel (well anything really) but seems to think that he isn’t good at it. He is.

    Hope you have had a good Christmas. Best wishes to you and yours for the new year x

    • Thanks Brenda, I’m pleased to report that the boy’s Mum totally loved it. I just absolutely love painting and drawing people, tell Stewart he is missing out! Hope you had a great Christmas. Hope 2011 is a great year for you all. x
