Charcoal and Pastel Pencil on White Paper
22 x 30 Inches
In 2022, I was commissioned to make three portraits of dogs for a family friend. This project represents my first time trying to draw animals in a realistic manner, so the whole experience was an opportunity for me to experiment rendering more detailed objects such as fur and grass. Each of these illustrations also feature an abstract color background based on a range of blue-green colors that the client recommended using. For the third picture, the photo I was using as a reference originally included the client's son, but I was told to omit this detail for the illustration, hence the black that frames both the dogs.
