Yeungling-The home stretch!

Very close to completion on this one. I need to finish the outstretched leg and then look at it for a day before my final "tweaking" , signature, and varnish...then it's off to Yeungling's loving owner.

WIP-Yeungling Finshing Head and Jumping Back into the Body...

After a busy weekend, I have jumped back into completing this portrait! Worked on the head tonight but did some body fur worked as well. I do jump around on the body fur while drawing the face and head from time to time to put things into persective for the darkness under the ear area. Seeing that started helps me do a color and tone check on the ear color.

Not as far along as I would have liked...Life got in the way! Moved to the Eye/Ear area, all will look cohesive before I am finished. See you next post!

Starting the corner and working my way across. Yeungling had a myriad of colors in her coat! Love it!
Running behind on posting! Will be posting my humble beginnings later this am.

"Yeungling" A Beloved Dog Portrait Commission

Although no longer here on earth, Yeungling's owner wants a portrait to honor her much loved friend...
I will be doing this portrait in colored pencil on an Ampersand pastelbord, color green. Having lost a dog in the past year who had the same type ear as this lovely pet, I was familiar enough to draw in the missing ear on the photo.
