Art Description

Drawing: Charcoal, Pastel and Ink on Paper.

This piece was drawn in charcoal, pastel, and pen.

When beginning a portrait of an animal, I always like to start with some stories or an idea of the pet's personality. Typically I like to find that personality in the eyes, but this portrait was perfect with him entirely drained after some serious play time.

Dog's are especially interesting as each breed has very unique characteristics in their fur. Here, I attempt to bring about the wiry texture of this Pointing Griffon. Rarely is that an easy task, but always worth the effort that is put in.

This was a gift for a friend. Most of my pet portraits are commissions, of which I do not sale any prints. Please check my website for additional portraits and information on commissioning a portrait.
