Monty and Chances – collie and labrador drawing

I completed this drawing in the last couple of days. It is of two lovely dogs called Monty and Chances – a black collie and a golden labrador. The portrait was commissioned as a 60th birthday present for the client’s friend. The drawing was drawn with graphite pencils on Fabriano 5 paper. I used Faber-Castell and Staedtler pencils 2B, 4B and 6B. The portrait is 20 x 40 cm in size which is a lovely wide landscape format.

I am also including some close-up images of each dog and reference photographs. The photos were a little blurred but I hope I still captured the likeness and essence of each dog.
