Drawing dogs at Battersea Old Windsor's Open Day

I had a great day drawing dogs at this year's Battersea Old Windsor Open day. It was nice to catch up with owners and dogs I'd met at previous Old Windsor open days and meet some new ones too. Thank you to everyone who sat patiently in my little Battersea tent while I painted their dog and to Battersea Dogs and Cats Home for inviting me to Old Windsor. Here's a couple of drawings from the day with more to be added over the next few days.

The National Portrait Gallery - Family Trail

Many thanks to Jan Cullen (Family Programmes Manager), Austin Barlow (designer) and all at the National Portrait Gallery for making this a great job to work on, for what has always been my favourite London gallery.

From the National Portrait Gallery website:

The National Portrait Gallery has appointed children's picture book illustrator Jason Chapmanto produce drawings for a free family trail and special exhibition labels that will offer a range of creative activities throughout the duration of the BP Portrait Award 2011. Jason’s book Stan and Mabel is out in paperback (Templar Publishing) and there’s a second Stan and Mabel adventure to look forward to in the future. His new book One Kiss, One Hug (Random House) is out in February 2012

Holy Granola!

Sheesh! Nearly a year since my last entry - where did that year go?
