This is Ellery, she is a Lakeland Terrier. I was asked to do a portrait of her as a gift for her owner. I certainly hope her owner likes the picture. I worked from several photos and it is always a challenge if I haven't met the dog in person to see her personality and to see if I've captured her expressions. I used Canson Mi Tientes paper, I think the orangy/brown color was Buff. I needed to use a lot of light colored pencils to cover the lighter shades in the fur.
