The Final Demonstration

I went over the softer shapes in both white and black pencils to make the fur more furry. Crisp edges and bright eyes. Voila!

Charcoal Aussie

Sorry, folks! I have been trying to keep things going all over the map and the pictures I have been painting do not have fur! I promise to post all dogs but they are few for now (but I have a feeling something big may be happening in March. Cross fingers for me.

This is a demonstration of charcoal that I did for my class in Mesa. We are tackling all sorts of subjects and I will take this to a sharper finish tomorrow. Keep watching.

Sweet Little Millie

This young lady was sitting in the dog park JUST SITTING! I spoke with her owners who were visiting from out of town. I was hoping to finish this and show them before they went home to San Diego.... Millie is a little widdow and although she seemed pretty disinterested and very opinionated when approached for comment, I found in most of my photos of her, she was actually either asleep sitting up, or resting her eyes.... such a personality!

Bill, the First Portrait this Year

I seem to be popular with the Pit Bull set, and I am complemented to be! I met Bill's owner at a the Lucky Dog event and was contacted to do this little memorial of a great old friend.
