Liffey is my friend's German Shorthaired Pointer. It was my friend's birthday and I wanted to gift him a drawing of Liffey, so snapped a photograph on a fleeting visit and in just under a week, I managed to complete this pencil portrait of her.
Not For Sale

Building up the layers of colour in Liffey's coat with the pencils. The highlights had a lot of blue and grey in them. Putting down pencil strokes in the direction of the fur.
