Meet Archie. Commission is soft pastels on “Colourfix” paper, 16″ x 12″ prior to framing.
This young Cocker Spaniel pup is so full of energy and fun I wondered how on earth I was going to get a reference photo. My luck was in though, and I managed to capture his look on my very first shot.
His coat is amazingly soft and I used some iridescent gold pastel to try highlight this. It’s not so obvious in the photograph of the finished picture, but in the right light, it catches the eye when passing by the original.
