I mentioned a while back that I donated a pet portrait to the Beagle Welfare fun day and that a gorgeous beagle called Max won. Well, Paula his owner did, but I got to draw Max. Paula didn’t want to see the updates until the picture was done and received. So, because I like to tease, here are the first of the updates:
I used grey Mi-Tientes paper and Prismas. Paula provided a lovely selection of reference photos, but we felt that this one was the right choice. Adding in the little blades of green grass that Max sat in provided a nice contrast to the oranges of Max’s beagle fur.
Max’s reference photo was taken and kindly permitted for use by Gary Clacher. Gary attends most beagle outings and takes fantastic photos of all the beagles. Credit and thanks to Gary for a great reference.
