New Pet Portrait: Bulldog with Sunflowers

I love drawing pets! They have so much personality and charm. But the last couple animal drawings seemed a little lonely. So I decided to try something different and give them some flowers!

Let’s be honest, everyone likes to get flowers.

This bulldog was a real treat to draw as pencil art! With his eager face and sparkling eyes, this composition was a great new colored pencil drawing challenge. The yellow and orange in the sunflower petals were a wonderful compliment to the dog’s fur. To really enhance the warm colors in the animal and plants in this pencil portrait, I made the vase and background a mix of cool blues and purples. This combo really helped the flowers pop. And since I was on a plant kick with this drawing, I included a frame of twigs around the entire image – giving this pet portrait a nice complete composition.
