Framing Pet Portraits in charcoal

I have to say this is one of my favourite charcoal drawings I’ve completed this year. It went well from beginning to end and being able to reproduce those fabulous shiny areas in contrast to the very dark fur was a real joy! Alas on collection day, Barney had been able to find and cover himself in some very thick gooey mud so was unable to visit. His Mum promised to send me a photo of him with his portrait when she got home. I think it’s safe to say this boy is idolised, his Mum even takes him abroad for canicross and it looks like he has his own chair too, not that he doesn’t deserve to be spoiled rotten as after meeting him I was totally smitten.

Don’t forget you too can visit my log cabin studio deep in the woods of the Forest of Dean.

You can see how his charcoal drawing was created step by step. I’ve created a short YouTube video of a different charcoal drawing for you to see how they come to life!
