Hello everyone, just having a break from drawing to show you what I have been working on today. This is "Raven" a beautiful Rottweiller and my next commission. At this point I am going through the process of drawing and shading and also working on showing the dogs personality by really close observation from all the photographs the owner has provided. It's going to be a really lovely painting I think. Once I've finished this stage I will be sending the pic to the owner so that she can check all is ok, after that I will be able to add more colour. I will be able to work more freely because I will have almost learnt the contors of Ravens face and can simplify things a little while still keeping the resemblance accurate.
