Cooper, Addie, and Rio portrait in progress 12

Cooper’s orange Search-and-Rescue collar is finished, and I’ve started on the third head study: Rio.

Putting together the eye…

This shows the pencil colors and strokes I’ve used to create the eye structure. You don’t get to see this level of detail in most of the “in progress” pics I share that show the whole portrait just a few inches wide.

Drawn with Prismacolor pencils on "Felt Grey" Canson paper, a fine-art paper from France that has little flecks and fibers in it.


This is how the portrait looks now.

I love seeing the heads emerge out of blank grey paper.
