20 Sep Alaskan Malamute Portrait
Dog portrait of the week has been this majestic Alaskan Malamute against a soft snow background.
For this dog portrait project I used a combination of drawing and painting techniques, using watercolour pencils to form a foundation for the dog and to create the soft blurred background. After blending with water and leaving to dry I used artist grade coloured pencils to build up the depth and detail of the Malamute.
Like other heroes from the working dogs group the Alaskan Malamute oozes a gentle strength that I hope I have captured and recreated in this pet portrait.
