Charlie the Bull Mastif – Portrait Commission

This is a pet portrait commission of the lovely Charlie!

All up this has to be the longest time I have worked on one piece, roughly 15+ hours, over about 4 days, so I am relieved that it is done. I feel my work on Charlie has given me a chance to show my coloured pencil skills have come up to standard to meet my graphite, so it’s pretty good for my portfolio.

Slight cost to my sanity though, perhaps. And a sore back 🙂

 

I never thought for one moment that Helen would be able to capture Charlie so wonderfully.  He does not look like any Bull Mastiff he looks like OUR Bull Mastiff.

She has done so well that I had to send a message to the website to thank her again, I recommend her heartily.
