Soft pastel on colourfix board 16″ × 20″

This picture was done for a friend who showed me a picture of her beautiful dog “Zena”. Being very new to portraits, I decided to give it a go.

This picture took about 2.5 hrs in total to complete. It was completed over a couple of weeks in 15 minute sessions to prove that I could “do anything in 15 mins”

Thankyou so much for stopping by and taking the time to look at my artwork!
A lot of my original artwork displayed on here is also available for sale. Please feel free to send me a message for more details.

    Great job, beautiful dog

  • thankyou. She really is a beautiful dog. I am told by my friend that she had a very rough start to life, so it is great to know that such a lovely natured dog now has a great home as well.
