During almost 35 years of creating pet portraits I've completed many, many times more dogs than cats and I've always wondered why. Is it because cats are so independent ... and dogs are more eager to please ... i.e., sit for photographs?
This portrait was rendered in colored pencil, one of my favorite mediums. I used Canson colored paper for more depth of color and texture in my drawing. Although I find all-black (or all-white) dogs harder to do I enjoyed "immortalizing" such a cute fellow!
