"Chipper" Prelim Drawing
Charcoal Pencil on Watercolor Paper
I have to be one of the luckiest people on earth. Well, nevermind that, but I do feel very lucky to have the privilege of doing what I love to do. Chipper is the next dog portrait. He's a Westie of special character and as you can see he is a happy little fellow. He sports a black sweater with a star on the front, not to mention that darling smile!
I am just getting started on his portrait. The painting will be 14X11 This is a smaller freehand drawing I did this afternoon, which I like to do to get the feel of the values, study the nuances, and generally give myself the deep breath treatment before I dive into the paints. Too much fun!!!
I am also posting the progress on him on "the Painted Dog" blog, which you can access on the right of this one.
