A commissioned portrait with little to no information about the dog, done in a combination of prisma and Faber Castell coloured pencils on a 30×40cm cold press illustration board.

I am a self taught coloured pencil artist residing in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia. My passion at the moment is human portraiture, especially celebrities, as due to their high profile nature the margin for error is minute and an intriguing challenge. I also do commissions, both human and non-human, when the occasion arises. Thank you for viewing my work and feel free to leave any comments, good or bad, and I will certainly respond.
Cheers

    Great portrait and capture of the expression in the eyes. A lot of dogs have these light noses, I think you caught it perfectly
    Had a look thru your galerie, wonderful entrees
    Have a nice weekend

  • Thanks heaps Heidi for your comment and for viewing my work. As I said in my comments, I had little info about the dog or the breed and the photos to work off weren’t much better.

    Fabulous detail here Gary, considering the less than perfect photographs you had to work from. I hope The plumber guy likes it, especially since he got such a good bargain!

  • Thanks Margaret, it’s actually for the plumber’s wife and if she is half as appreciative as you I’ll be happy.
