This is a commission of a friends English Springer Spaniel and Black Labrador.
The size is approximately A2 and it’s a drawing completed using Caran d’Ache Pencils and Derwent Studio Pencils.

It took about 3 weeks and I had to wait AGES before I could show it to anyone as it was a surprise present, really hard to do when you’ve worked hard and been proud of what you’ve done.
