Over christmas 2016/2017 I decided to practice drawing animals, I felt i was out of practice at drawing from real life so I asked friends and family if they would like a portrait of their pet and any money I raised i would give to animal charities. I raised £100 altogether and split it between Dogs Trust and Cats Protection. I really love drawing animals, especially their eyes and I hope I have brought across the emotion of the animal. I have drawn from photographs which people sent to me and even though it was very enjoyable It was also challenging to convey their personalities. I am looking forward to drawing many more pet portraits in the future to improve and develop my skills and techniques 🙂 .
