Pet Portraits

I don't usually post my daughter's drawing. She is doing GCSE Art, so there is quite a lot of drawing and painting going on. But these ones are a bit personal, as she did them for the family. They are charcoal drawings of our pets. The first one was done about a year ago, and has been up on the wall, so I have been pestering for a picture of the cats to go along side it. I was really pleased when she did one of the cats last week. Although they are mother and daughter, they don't like each other very much, so it would be very unusual to get them sitting this close. I do think she has captured their characters - particular Noodle, who is often a bit of a grump.

Just a reminder that my Ginx Woolly Linx party for June is now running. Click on the photo above or at the top of the page to find the party. I would love to see what you have been working on this month.


  1. Your daughter is a talented artist. I hope you'll post more of her creations. Your family must treasure these wonderful drawings.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

  2. These are great. Faces are difficult, be they human or animal!
    This takes me back to my drawing days when I did O level art, I still have a stash of drawing pads full of all sorts of things stuffed up in the attic somewhere. I can't even remember the last time I drew anything more than a fun doodle - probably 1986! Tell your daughter to never stop drawing for fun, once you stop it's hard to start again!

  3. I'm loving this! =D

    Great pet portraits!
