|Newfoundland commission reference photo|
|Newfoundland commission contour drawing|
This is going to be a commission work in progress of a female Newfoundland named Echo. The owners of Echo asked that I come out to their house to take her pictures. She was getting quite old and they wanted me to take the pictures of her right away. It's a good thing I did because she recently passed away. I took several pictures of her and this is the photo I settled on. I loved how she was looking up at the owner with such loving eyes. I sure hope I can do her justice in the rendition of this most regal dog.
This piece will be 12" X 12", 100% Colored Pencil on tan Suede Mat Board. At this point all I have done is the contour drawing and transferred it to the suede mat.
I use a grid when creating my contour drawing and then I transfer it to the suede board using transfer paper.
As I mentioned in my last post of the elephants I will be jumping back and forth between the elephants and this piece. I need to get the elephants done also but I'm having a tough time focusing on the boring skin, LOL.
Please keep checking back, as I will post the progress on both pieces I'm working on. It will be a bit slow for a while, at least until the CPSA convention is over. After that I hope to be a lot more steady on my progress on both pieces.
