Rosie & Scrappy

I had the pleasure of drawing this gorgeous pair earlier in the year. I had the pleasure of knowing these two really well after looking after them many times during my previous job at a kennels. The both were such characters. Sadly, Rosie (to the left) passed away a couple of months before I did this drawing. I have very fond memories of them both and being asked to do the portrait for a surprise for their mum was a real privilege.

A4 (8.3″ x 11.7″) Colour pencil drawing

I did have to adapt the brightness and colour of this portrait quite a lot from the reference photograph. They were both laying on the sofa and because of the angle we decided to just add a shadow underneath them to merge them to the paper.

I love seeing photographs of the portraits framed and on the wall in their home πŸ™‚
