Pet Portrait of the Week is Boris, an Irish Water Spaniel. Boris is the first really curly coated dog I’ve been commissioned to draw or paint and getting to grips with his coat has been a real learning curve.

There's a new pet portrait on my drawing board today.
Is it a painting ? or is it a drawing ? I guess you could say it's both !
This Golden Retriever dog portrait is being created by combining both artists pencils and paint brushes for blending - the foundation has been created using #CaranDAche water soluble pencils on brown #Pastelmat. The pigment has been blended with water and now needs to dry before I can continue...
Follow my progress with this portrait on my Facebook page or website.

The pigment has been blended with water and a paint brush and now needs to dry before I can start to build up the depth, definition and detail using oil based pencils. Follow my progress with this portrait on my Facebook page or website.

Finished my latest pet portrait commission - Babes in the Wood.
Hand drawn using #CaranDAche and #FaberCastell pencils.
18x26" on 50x70cm anthracite Pastemat.
Reference photo by client, with a little artistic licence for the background.
Bernese Mountain Dogs Vino & Rioja love searching for squirrels in the woods so it seemed only natural to portray them doing what they love best in the place they most like to be.

The portrait of this handsome Bernese Mountain Dog was drawn using Faber Castell & Caran D'Ache artist pencils on anthracite Pastelmat using his owner's photo as a reference… this is one dog portrait commission that I would quite happily have kept for myself and hung on the wall in my studio … but then I do have a soft-spot for this beautiful breed and know that this sweet boy is every bit as adorable as he he looks !
