I am overdue adding more animals to my portfolio so I've made a start on a dog portrait. This will be a golden retriever and as always I start with the eyes and nose as they tend to be the focal points of a portrait. While the rest is very important and pulls the image together, the eyes still draw the viewer in.
This is just the start and the eyes and nose still need a fair bit of work, but the 'bones' are there. This drawing is 9 x 12 on Bristol Vellum using Prismacolor pencils. I love seeing the image appear out of the white paper, its always magical.
