A Christmas portrait of my friend’s Staffy, done in Dewent Studio and Faber Castell coloured pencils on a 30×40cm cold press illustration board. His droopy look is entirely consistent with his temperament.

This is beautiful Gary. I thought it was a photo when I first saw it. I love the look you have captured on him and I’m sure your friend does too. Wonderful work!
Thank you Ginny for that lovely comment, and yes he was very pleased with the portrait. His wife who gave it to him for Christmas has often said “he loves that dam dog more than he loves me!”.
LOL I have heard those words before…lol….only with a she instead of a he. :))
I love how get those perfect white whiskas on top of the dark background. I’m guessing you outline them first then carefully colour around them with the dark pencil. Such dedication. They’re perfect. And I love his expression.
I’m afraid my ‘dedication’ involves a very fine brush, some white acrylic paint and 4 quick flicks.. As always Margaret, I look forward to your comments.
Many thanks Laura, always an honour to be featured in your group.
