03 Sep Bernese Mountain Dogs – Skarlett & Kodiak

Bernese Mountain Dog PortraitBernese Mountain Dog Skarlett and Bernese puppy Kodiak. One of my favourite pet portraits of the year so far.

Drawn using Faber CastellĀ and Caran D’Ache pencils on Pastelmat.

Kodiak’s bottom and tail were missing on the reference photo but added in to the finished portrait. The sunburst style background works well to recapture the warmth and direction of lighting seen in the original photograph.

 

“I didnt think their portrait could get any more beautiful but seeing it in person literally made me tear up, I am speechless. Thank you so so so so much !!!!”
