Getting started on the portrait....
And here it is finished!
|"Cody" - 8x10 colored pencil on black Canson paper|
I love working with colored pencil on black paper. It really makes the color "pop" and gives a different texture and atmosphere than cp on white. My first dog, Rudy, was a cockapoo-terrier mix and although she was bigger and differently colored than Cody, she had that same rakish look. Working on Cody brought back lots of memories of the MILLIONS of drawings I used to do of her. She was born in 1985 and passed away in 2001- quite a girl! Viva la scruffy dog!
