Jessie Finished

Arches 300gsm.   21.5 x 34 cms


I am calling this finished.   I am ready to move onto something in Graphite.  I am not totally happy with it. I will do one in graphite and see how it turns out.  At least I have a live model here.  Hehehe.

Dors, I think its wonderful.
You've captured a really mischievous, happy look in her eyes, which cries out terrier. Great job! xx

I've been following the WIP's with much interest as I feel I ought to do much better with coloured pencils than I do. This is awesome. Amazing work!!!

He looks brilliant Dors.

I'll never understand how you get so much detail in the fur!

A wonderful finish, Dors! Does Jessie approve as much as we do?

He turned out really well Dors. I especially love the richness of color as well as his twinkly eyes. Excellent job on the nose and tongue too! You make cp look easy!

Doreen Cross said...

Thank you Jill, Jan and Colette for your lovely comments. Oh where would I be without you all. hugs xx.

Dors he does look great. I know how hard it is to do the whites! If you are not happy with him try doing a portrait that is a little more to the side rather than full front and then he wont have such a 'smile'. I find this smile gives you a funny feeling that things aren't right when looking at the portrait.

Doreen Cross said...

Thank you Wendy. I agree about the pose, I will try more a side shot and see how it goes. xx

Hi Dors,

This is beautiful. The fur, the expression. I love your other post where he is checking out his portrait. Very cute photo.
