The Story Of


This delightful Spaniel was a commission I did for a lovely lady called Rosella, who lives in Spain. Bella was a joy to draw and Rosella looked like she was very happy with the result. Makes me happy!

Commission (Spain)


This photo is of Rosella receiving the finished drawing of Bella, in Spain. I love the joy my drawings can bring to my clients.

I started this drawing with a very light and simple sketch, the only part I went deeper into were her eyes.


Gradually adding depth with layers of coloured pencil and also trying to capture the wispy nature of the the fur on Bella's ears. Putting in the base layers on the nose.


Building up the texture of the fur and the depth of colour and refining the tonal qualities I can see.
