Polly’s Portrait

This is a drawing I worked on a few weeks ago. It was one of two dog portraits for the same client from county Wicklow. Polly has sadly passed away a short time ago and her portrait is being given to her owner as a birthday present. The drawing was 20 x 25 cm in size and drawn with graphite pencils on paper. I worked from one reference photo which worked very well, so no adjustments were needed. I am including a scan of the drawing below together with the reference photo and an image of the finished drawing in a mount.

I completed another portrait for the same client, of her three dogs, wheaten terriers. I will be posting an image of the finished drawing soon, so please check back for updates 🙂
