Punchie and Ruben

Punchie and Ruben

Pencil and pastel – 2013.  I recently drew these two for a work colleague of my husband’s who wanted it for a wedding anniversary gift for his wife.  It was a challenge, that’s for sure, as one dog is three times bigger than the other.  I decided that the only way to get them in the same portrait was to get them to lie down together and have them at the same level.  The black and white contrast was also interesting and messy at times.  This portrait took a little longer than I would have liked due to health problems but it’s now off to the framers to be finished off and packed ready to go to it’s new home.
