Cairn Terrier

I came across this Cairn Terrier puppy at a recent fair. It was visiting another trader and I just had to draw it. As I had forgotten my camera, they managed to get a great reference photo for me to use and here is the resulting drawing.

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

'Meeting Post'

'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.

Stiles, rabbits, sheep...same old thing!!

Yet another stile drawing, similar to the Squeeze Stile drawn last year, but in a different setting (and from the gate side).

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.
