12/06: Frankie. Pastel on white Pastelmat

Its too cold/grey to work in the garden as planned so I've started a small portrait of my ex-Sister-in-Law's little dog, Frankie.

Its S-i-Law's birthday soon so I'll have it ready for then.

Frankie is very cute and I've filched this photo from her FB page showing him with his nice new haircut.    He is about 13 years old now but not doing badly for a pensioner.

Its only a small portrait - slightly bigger than A4 sized (around 10 x 13") so it is going quite quickly although I do prefer to work 'bigger' when using pastelmat to get sharper detail.  I know wall space is tight at her house though.

Ah, really cute, Sue. I like the detail you are getting in his fur. You are getting his happy character beautifully.

Thanks Jennifer, Hilda and Bev. Yes, when I saw the picture on FB I saved it in my 'possible' folder as he does look a happy chappie doesn't he?
