The Story Of
Gus is one of two lovely Basset Hounds and they are my latest Commission. They are separate portraits on American A3 size Pastelmat paper drawn with coloured pencils.
They took a total of 50 hours to complete they are now being framed for the happy clients
I love to start with the eyes. Windows to the Soul...
If you get them right the rest just follows.
After the eyes are in I start putting in the hair in the direction it grows, gradually layering up to add depth.
I do love a dog's nose! They're all as different as fingerprints and the light catches the texture.
