Beckie Bray - Commission artist. People pay me to draw stuff...I know, I know, best job ever!
Work In Progress.Done in colour pencil on pastel paper.Almost finished this one. Still have at least another layer of shading/colour to go on the hair and face to pull it all together, and obviously to finish the clothes.I’ve never seen any of Tom’s films [a friend requested this portrait], so have no idea if I’m a fan, but I certainly haven’t minded the time spent drawing him, he’s pretty easy on the eyes! It would be nice if all work was like this!

I thought that moving to the countryside would be a nice, peaceful change to life in London.
I thought I would have time for quiet reflection and work on my art.

I was wrong.

My horses have been loose and made their way to a farm a mile and a half away. My goat has had a ride in a police car. We have a Cockrel living with us, and no-one knows where he came from. Both him and the goat like to stand outside my window and make as much noise as possible. They tag-team. Goat during the day. Chicken all night. My dog wants to kill the neighbour’s dog because she keeps growling at him. I’m pretty sure there are satanic rituals going on in the dis-used Church and…oh for fuck sake…the goat is in the neighbours porch again…I better go and deal with that before he gets home from work.

Knock, Knock.
Who’s there? 
Hal.
Hal who? 
HAL LONG UNTIL HENRY IV DIES AND I CAN BECOME KING?!hAHAHAHA HA HA Oh god someone take the internet away from me. I’ve had no sleep, too much coffee and have reached the point in the day where I’m convinced in my own hilarity.Anyway, this is an update of the work in progress. [Other WIP’s can be seen on my blog]. It’s done in colour-pencil and hope.

There’s a TV show on a lot called “What Do Artists Do All Day?” and it makes it seem like artists are really well adjusted, productive people, which we all know is a lie, but I guess they can’t make shows about people putting off drawing that commission because they’re really busy eating Pringles and watching YouTube videos of a woman dancing the Bolero with a jack russel dog.

Work in progressColour-pencil on pastel paper.I was at work for most of today, so only managed an hour or two on this tonight. Hopefully, I’ll get more of a chance tomorrow.[However, my friend who requested it seems pretty happy with the way it’s going…she bought me chocolate, so that’s a good sign right?! Chocolate always goes down well with me, I’m cheap and easy like that!]
