13/08: Molly - Miniature Schnauzer

Molly is being drawn in pastel on Fisher 400 paper as a wedding anniversary gift. The clients' three sons (assisted by their Gran) bought their parents a pet portrait gift voucher as an anniversary present.

There was a slight delay in redeeming the voucher as, in an effort to smarten Molly up, the clients had her clipped - and unfortunately, she no longer looked like the Molly they knew and loved!!! So Molly's coat has grown back a little now and I started work on her late yesterday.

I'm having a lot of fun with this portrait - she has a wonderful expression and the coat is a nice challenge!
