02/11: CHOCOLATE LABRADOR

This is Chloe, a beautiful chocolate labrador which I fitted in between the graphite 'children' portraits. She was commissioned as a birthday present by a lady whose cat I recently drew (Charlie). Her daughter's birthday was last Friday so I am able to post the picture without spoiling any surprises. This is pastels on Sennelier Pastel Card.

I know I took more work-in-progress photos but I think I deleted them when thinning some of my files. I do keep records of all previous commissions but try to keep only the relevant ref photos and wip pictures now ...

Thanks Jan
My photography isn't too good here - the contrast between neck and face wasn't really that great (honest)!!
