Staffordshire portrait

Before Christmas I had received so many commissions I couldn’t take them all! So i began to offer some pet portrait vouchers that would be small postcard sized portraits upon receipt of the deposit to be given as a Christmas card, with the promise of a pet portrait in due time. The first one of these was this very handsome dog; the card was completed in watercolour pencil and white gel pen, and the commission was graphite in A4. I only use mechanical pencils for my pet portraits, with an electric eraser and putty eraser for detailing.

(Again, this was a photograph not a scan so please excuse the quality of my editing!)
