09/04: 'Black on Black' Labrador in Coloured Pencil

I've wanted to do another drawing on a black support for a while so I decided to tackle a black lab on Anthracite (very dark grey) pastelmat.

Its not turning out the way I'd hoped, but its something I can pick up and put down easily so I'll stick with it and see what happens ...

Its amazingly difficult to photograph as the camera keeps trying to compensate 

First WIP (work in progress) photo


and today's update:

There are a lot of colours in the 'black' coat - blues, mauves, even reds/greens in places and lots of greys to suggest highlights
