A VERY handsome guy!

Hi all,

I thought this title might get your attention. Hee hee!

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments, and welcome to every one who has decided to become a follower of my arty blog. You all make me smile. :o)

I'm back today with another piece of art. Another graphite pencil portrait I completed over the past couple of weeks.

I'm a sucker for handsome good looks, and this guy would melt the heart of Cruella De'Vil.
Don't get scared now Buddy, if your reading this, it's okay, she's nowhere around.

Some of you may recognise him already. Let me introduce the co-star and sweeper-upper of Kath's blog.
The gorgeous (and his mum says naughty!... Why? I can't imagine!)

happy boy, Buddy.

He's so good looking, I had done another before this one.
(p.s. Buddy, your head is perfect it's normal size, so no up-sizing with these compliments. Having a big tail is trouble enough!)

This was my first portrait of him.

Here, he's got that typical wee sad look Labradors are good at, as if to say
"A cuddle or a treat will make it all better"..... and it works every time, lol

Thanks again for stopping by.
Let me know you were here, I love hearing from you.

Have a great day

hugs Alexandra x


  1. These are just gorgeous! Your talent is certainly not limited to just flowers. Do you ever do cats?

  2. I am a big fan of Buddy, and this drawing is great. You are so clever Alexandra, hugs, Ursula

  3. Alexandra you are such a wonderful artist, I recognised Buddy straight away, he is fabulous (despite the recent slipper incident). I do hope Kath has seen it, this will melt her heart. Stunning, stunning work yet again........Crafty hugs, Anne x

  4. That's my kind of guy! He is a handsome devil, isn't he? I declare, Alexandra, since you scraped off the rust you just get better and better. These drawings are superb!

  5. O my word.. your art work is AmAzing.. Kath will be so delighted the furry boy looks fantastic... Joined as a follower as to not future fabulous creations... Hugs May x x x

  6. Beautiful sketches of Buddy, I saw them on Kath's blog and came over for a nosey. I know what you mean about the Labrador "sad look!" We've had a yellow one and then a chocolate one and at the moment we have two black boys. Your doggies look gorgeous, my daughter has an old yellow girl and a young black girl down in Crieff. My two love to play with them!!!

  7. fantastic art Alexandra - been to Kath's blog and came to tell you that these are stunning! hugs Karen x

  8. Hi Alexandra, I just had to pop over from Kaths blog and say how gorgeous your sketches were of Buddy. I've enjoyed going through your blog,and thanks for the flower didgis. I only wish I had the talent to draw my own but alas no.

  9. Just found your blog following Kaths' post. OMG your drawings are amazing. Such talent. I've been searching for someone to draw or paint my husbands "4th Son" a Jack Russell Terrier for his birthday in October. Dont suppose you would be interested? I live in Australia and happy to pay with the folded stuff or an art swap. I understand if you are too busy or have too many requests already. Thanks for considering all the same.

  10. 'Drawn' here (pardon the pun)via Kath's blog, and I have to say I think your work is fantastic. Thje sketches you did of Buddy are superb and so lifelike. I am going to make a point of popping back just to get a taste of your work. Me.. I canna draw a straight line.

  11. Fabulous sketches of Buddy - superb! Mary G x
