This will be added to my (currently rapidly expanding) dog collection.

'Meeting Post' is finished.
Another addition to the Stile Collection, here we have a gate stile within a dry stone wall. Who knows what the rabbits are meeting up to discuss - maybe how to get safely across the road!
The location is just west of Bainbridge in the Yorkshire Dales. Size 11"x8". Time approx 40 hours.

The scene in the background (that you can't see yet) caught my eye on the way to a fair in Hawes. I pulled over and noticed a stile on the opposite side of the road. Of course, I had to take the opportunity to add another stile drawing to the collection - although, I am running out of different styles of stiles to draw!!
As always, I have to get some animals in there somewhere, so this one is going to get the addition of a couple of rabbits and some grazing sheep.
Probably about 30 hours into this with maybe 10 to go.

A new addition to the ever-expanding dog collection, sees a Border Collie head study. As regular readers may be aware, I attend a lot of art and craft fairs and am always being asked for prints of dog breeds that I don't have. The Border Collie has been top of that list for quite a while, so I thought it was time I added one.
Watch this space for the next few on the list (coincidentally, all Terriers), a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Yorkshire Terrier and Border Terrier.

A slight deviation from the norm for me here. This is Milby Lock on the River Ure at Boroughrbridge. I walk past this lock most days with my dog, Brinkley (as you can see) and have thought for a while how interesting it would be to tackle in graphite.
The finished piece is 38x24cm and took about 60 hours to complete.

Second, we have a couple of kittens hiding away in a paper bag (I know, going for the 'Ahhhh' factor there!)
