Welcome to my pet and family portrait blog. If you have commissioned a portrait you can see how it is progressing. If you would like to commission me to paint your pet, family or friend then visit my site at www.katetugwellportraits.com
I love the first stages of a painting: all colour applied to the canvas transforms it and the portrait seems to take form relatively quickly. The next few stages always seem much slower as various washes are applied to build up translucent skin tones. I'll continue to post them though it's harder to tell the difference!
