Boris Finds A Comfy Spot

The picture above is my latest charcoal drawing. The subject is a shetland sheepdog puppy named Boris. I took several pics of this pup while I was visiting my in-laws in Pennsylvania. The reference pic had blades of grass in the background, which I found a bit boring to draw. So, I added a background of comfy blankets to the drawing to enhance his snuggly position. The drawing is 11x14" in size and is rendered in charcoal sticks on smooth, vellum paper.
