The dog, Ford

 A recent commissioned portrait of a dog. I did this in pastel pencils on Strathmore toned tan paper. This portrait went well right from the start. To begin with I had a good photo to work from, clear and nothing getting in the way of his nice pose. I was in the mood for drawing and spent a whole Sunday working on this. The clients were very happy with the drawing and hopefully it is now framed and on their wall.

Now that spring is here, and summer is on the way, my studio is getting warmer and much more pleasant to work in. I think a possum has chewed through the wires in the ceiling because my main light dosn't go any more, but I have lamps and now that the days are longer I have more hours of daylight to work in.
