Golden Retriever Dog Portrait

Phew! What a picture this was to draw. This was a commission I was asked to do, and as soon as I went along to take some photos of this guy, I knew I'd have my work cut out. Talk about fur! I enjoyed it though, he was also one of the palest retrievers I had ever seen, so I drew him on grey card otherwise there would have only been two eyes and a nose to look at!

"Blonde" is a hard color to do - this is soft yet definted, great work! :)

Oh how regal. A very very beautiful portrait. His pink nose is absolutely perfect. I know how it is about the furr! By the time it's finished your're about ready to cough up hairballs! Great job Ruth. It couldn't be more perfect!!
