Artist's Description

Meet Dougie..a cute Jack Rusell dog! This is my first commissioned pet portrait. I was given a photo where his eyes had reacted to the flash but knowing they were dark did some guess work. Seeing as Dougie has mostly white fur, and wanting contrast, I used special black pastel paper that my bubble friend Karen Hull had so kindly sent to me…so I was happy I succeeded first try! I really hope I have done Dougie proud…he is such a handsome little dog, getting on in years now, and loved dearly by his owners.
Below are just a few stages of my drawing process.
Photo of Dougie

I sketched a quick outline with white pastel, and began at the top so as not to smudge the pastel, and slowly worked my way down

I continued using long strokes and adding fur for depth, shape and form. Before the final artwork I thickened the legs you see here that needed more work…and added a few final touch ups.

Dougie
I am small but my loyalty is strong,
When you go for a walk you take me along.
I am close by your side at all times,
I am your best friend, as I know you are mine.
I watch over you, you are never alone,
I am lucky to have you for my very own.
