Ringing in the New Year with Maggie!!


 Old and New

baby and adult

a Good Fit - For New Years!!

Maggie - 5.5 x 7.5 - Graphite

Maggie as a baby, only 6 weeks old in this picture.  No, still with her mother but already has a new home waiting.  Soooooo cute and cuddly. 

Flash forward to now. . . .

 Full grown, 8 years old.  

A much loved dog, and great family companion.  I was thrilled to have the opportunity to draw her.  The owners picked their favourite pictures and my challenge was to make them work.  I use Photoshop to manipulate the pictures.  I don't know all it secrets but I can move things around and it allows me to give my clients a sense of where the drawing is going.  It took several trial layouts and a few emails but when I put this one together I know I had found the right combination.  

We were both thrilled with the results!!

I want to Wish You all the best for the New Year!!

I know what you mean. When I put this combo together I know right away I had a winner. Funny, you can work on something for hours then suddenly something clicks!
