"Jack" 8" x 10," Graphite Pencil on Paper

The wavy black fur in this picture was a great opportunity to play with highlights. Luckily, the initial image was taken near a window on a bright day. This exceptional lighting also enabled me to see the subtle differences in the hair length, particularly between the face and ears.

A dog with a long snout is a great chance for a profile portrait. The outline of Jack’s face is very dramatic, especially with that big beautiful eye.
