The Story Of


This is Jaxx a very handsome German Shorthaired Pointer.
He was commissioned for a birthday present. And I think well received!

Coloured Pencil on Pastelmat board.

The framed drawing of Jaxx on the wall

I drew a rough outline in pencil, concentrating on the markings and colour changes on the coat. 
Then I started to layer the pencil starting with the eyes.


Building up the layers to establish the tonal values.

As I work with the layers of pencil I find the colours
in the black fur and use them as a base
for the darker blacks. And of course make sure

I have all the details on that gorgeous nose!
