Recent Colored Pencil Pet Portraits
This is a colored pencil commission I did for a customer who gave it as a gift. Size is 8x10" on Stonehenge Paper.
Here is a colored pencil portrait of Spiff which is also 8x10". Above is the portrait and below is the reference photo I worked from. I cleaned him up and put him on a dark red/brown background. The surface is Ampersand Pastelbord. I had fun with all the different white variations in Spiff's fur.
This is Rosie a Cavapoo breed of dog. I loved how her fur was so curly, colorful and fun to draw. This portrait is also in colored pencil and worked on 8x10" Ampersand Pastelbord.
I varnishe and frame all of these 8x10" portraits in this brown floater frame, here is the example of Rosie framed.
