Blanket Buddy

It's been about a month since I've worked on a piece of art. Sometimes, we find ourselves needing to recharge our batteries. When I was in NH, I took several pictures of golden retrievers. The picture above was drawn from one of the reference photos taken in NH. The subject is my senior golden retriever, Sunny. Poor Sunny had quite a flare up of hot spots and needed to have his belly shaved. We covered him in blankets, because the fellow was a bit nude without his usual crops of golden waves.

The drawing is done in pastels on smooth white vellum paper. It is 11 x 14" landscape in size.

I'm just happy to be back in the swing of things and inspired to draw!
