Special Moments

The First Encounter
8x10 inches
Coloured Pencil on Colourfix Suede

Grandpa Elliott in Miniature
2.5x3.5 inches
Scratch art and Coloured Pencils on Scratchbord

I was priveleged to have the opportunity to draw the commission for The First Encounter. It is always a joy for any artist who works on commission to be able to draw moments that convey human moments and this lovely image was no exception.

I was also thrilled to discover that this little version of Grandpa Elliott was award the Most Innovative piece at the recent Australian Society of Miniature Art National Awards Exhibition, and was also purchased by the judge. Grandpa Elliott has been a bit of a lucky charm for me and I send lots of hugs his way!!! :)

Two beautiful drawings (as always) Karen.

I think Grandpa Elliott is also my favourite of your subjects so small wonder the judge purchased the portrait.

Congratulations :-)

Granpa Elliott is a great piece, not surprised they loved it. The combination of scratch art and coloured pencil gives it great texture.
