Pastel, charcoal, colored pencil on earth-tone paper. This is my sons dog whose name is J.B. which is short for Just Black. It wasn't easy portraying a dog that is easily tripped over if it is dark. I mean he is really black.
A lot of expression on that dogs face! Lol
Yes black is hard. You have done a nice job.
Nice portrait. We have a 89.5lb black dog, named Bear, and I have tripped over im in the dark. Part Blak Lab and Akita and he is a big Teddy Bear.
Good job. I have a black lab and have tripped over him several times--not because he is black- but because he is always in the way. He loves to worship me around my feet.
Alexandra, Laura, Charlie and Mike, thanks so much for your comments.
nice job. i have two mostly black dogs that are never more than four feet away until they escape out of doors.
