The piece titled: The Bear is a 14″ x 17″ sketch drawn entirely in 6B soft graphite.
The subject is an Australian Shepherd and Doberman named Lola, who belongs to my close friend Abby. Seeing as how her birthday just passed, it was only fitting to gift her a family portrait.
The piece Zoey is a birthday gift commissioned by a coworker. The 11 x 14 sketch took eight hours to produce.
I took my time with the trees and bushes. The background is composed of two layers of shading to create texture and depth.
Happy birthday Taryn, I hope your birthday week has been good to you! And I hope you like your portrait of Zoey as well.
