Trixie has been photographed indoors using a 'flash'. It makes her fur shine, but her eyes have become very reflective!

This lovely retro hanky came is a box with three others, and was labeled PURE IRISH LINEN!
I finished the lettering waiting for the local pantomime to start on Saturday!
This is Peanut who was fun to draw with so many colours to build up the rich tan!
As you can see from Peanut's photo one of the eyes was clear and one was very much in shadow so I enjoyed the challenge of making the right eye reappear, using the left as a reference.
White highlights show how the beagle has aged. At this point (below) the drawing looks almost done!
The final touch is the shading on the white parts of the dog, making the dog look three-dimensional in this area too!
I think Peanut is pleased with his portrait!
And so does his owner!

It fitted into the floor space at the back of all the chairs laid out for Sunday's meeting ....
It also comes in three parts and will make me very happy. Can you guess what I'm making?
Afterwards, all the lose threads were hoovered up and no body knew we had been having fun with 270 8inch squares!
