I am currently working on a portrait of my own dog. She is a Norwegian Buhund, named Björka. She is an elderly lady of 10 ½ years. She is such a lovely companion.
I paint the portrait in colored pencils. This is mostly Derwent Artist pencils, with a few FaberCastell Polychromos and Karisma also. But it was my idea to make some drawings in 1-2 brands and because Karisma is soon gonna dissapear from the european marked as artsuppliers run dry, I have to build up my supplies with other brands. I have access to these 2 brands in open stock, which is what I want. And I like them even rather different from Karisma pencils...
the paper is rather smooth, but still takes some layers. And the DWA and FC P sticks fine to it.
Here is an update, with the finished portrait

This title I found suited this Mississippi Alligator very well. You can see from the steps of my drawing how I figure out the pattern of the skin before going into details. This is a small drawing but it took time to complete the detailed apperance of an alligator....

I love to draw and paint dogs, to show their personality and to give your pets life through my pencil or brush...
..my graphite drawing "Mille" of a poodle
.. and my colorpencil drawing of "Blue Merle Collie", are all examples of how a commissioned portrait can look.

I will be glad to do a portrait of your pet; Dog, Cat, Horse or any other domestic animal, or perhaps your favorite wildlife animal.
Robert is my sisters horse. He is a Danish Oldenburger Horse. My sister was very happy with this drawing.
Perhaps you would like a portrait of your horse ?
